JOHN D. ANDERSON MEMORIAL WILDLIFE PRESERVE

Protected in 1993

Acreage: 125

Location: Summit County, UT

Pinion Canyon’s breathtaking relict Pinion Juniper and White Fir forest communities are second only to the three pure springs it houses for the town of Oakley. When it became apparent that substantial development in the area could threaten this pure watershed for the town and destroy the habitat and unique beauty of the canyon, Utah Open Lands stepped in to help the town forever protect this Canyon and its varied resources. Today, through the donation of Bruce and Jan Manning, the Canyon serves as a wildlife preserve and protects Oakley’s culinary water supply.
