What is the Henry’s Fork Legacy Project?

The Henry’s Fork Legacy Project is a collaboration of local organizations and agencies dedicated to conserving the rural landscapes and unique natural resources of the Upper Henry’s Fork. The Henry’s Fork Legacy Project:

    • Helps farmers and ranchers stay on the land, preserving our rural heritage
    • Keeps both people and wildlife safe by reducing wildlife conflicts
    • Protects public access to waterways and public lands so that residents and visitors can enjoy our rivers and natural areas
    • Assists local communities with development of land and resource management plans that will protect fish and wildlife, clean water, and agriculture[/toggle]¬†

Why the Henry’s Fork Legacy Project?

The Henry’s Fork Watershed is world renowned for its blue-ribbon trout fisheries, big game hunting, hiking, motorized recreation and a wide variety of other outdoor pursuits. All significantly contribute to the local economy as does ranching and farming and many related businesses. But the long-term viability of these activities could be threatened by changes in land use and development.

Fortunately we have tools and strategies to help new developments benefit our communities while protecting natural values. Foresight, collaboration and well-planned conservation can protect our environment and our rural quality of life.[/toggle]

Protecting A Legacy.

The Henry’s Fork Legacy Project focuses on three primary activities:

1. Providing landowners with resources and financial incentives to conserve working farms and ranches and the rural lifestyle they sustain.

2. Helping protect wildlife, restore habitats, and reduce human-wildlife conflicts.

3. Providing information and tools to aid the development of land and resource management plans that will protect natural resources while meeting human needs.[/toggle]
