Protected in 2018
Acreage: 25 Location: Grand County, UT
On December 27, 2018, UOL received a donated conservation easement on 25 acres of former agricultural land in Castle Valley. The Arrowhead Preserve is poetically named to match the storybook-like character of the open range landscape and surrounding stunning geographical formations. An adventure on this property may supply sights of the Ferruginous hawk or Corn snake of the Utah Sensitive Species list, or a broad range of Utah wildlife game species. Specifically, the property is a part of the greater contiguity of open space and natural lands, serving as a wildlife corridor for mule deer. The protected property preserves Utah’s native grassland character and is visible from the iconic recreational destination of Castle Valley. This property provides views of Utah’s native lands in the area of high tourism activity and development pressure of Moab, providing scenic viewshed along the transportation corridor for travelers exploring Arches National Park, Canyon Lands National Park and Dead Horse Point State Park.
