he generous gift of Church Farm in 2006 to the Wood River Land Trust by long-time valley resident Joyce Pearson was a farsighted move to protect this property. The 131-acre parcel is located in the southwest corner of the Bellevue Triangle surrounded by working ranches. Farming and grazing on portions of Church Farm continue with sustainable wildlife-friendly practices, and a fence has been built to safeguard the wetlands. Church Farm’s extensive wetlands provide habitat for sandhill cranes, waterfowl, songbirds, and other wildlife. Willow Creek, a perennial spring-fed stream, runs through it, and artesian springs provide cold, clear water that contributes to the wetlands health. With views of the Pioneers to the east and magical light at all times of year, Church Farm is a scenic dream.
