RICHARD CLARK MEMORIAL WATERSHED, WILDLIFE, AND NATURE PRESERVE

Protected in 1999

Acreage: 320

Location: Salt Lake County, UT

The property possesses important forested, open space, wildlife, scenic, and natural watershed values, comprising part of the underground water recharge area for the resident water users in Emigration Canyon and is especially important to the water users of the Emigration Oaks subdivision. With a conservation easement donation to Utah Open Lands, it is the desire of the Trustees of the Emigration Improvement District to prevent future conversions of forest land and forest resources to development, protect and enhance surface and groundwater quality and supplies, protect wildlife habitat and corridors to ensure biodiversity, preserve riparian areas, and maintain the natural state and functions of these lands.
