The Draper Wood River Preserve came together over six years and through three acquisitions, and has become a 124-acre property that protects half a mile of the Big Wood River. This public treasure demonstrates the value of community conservation through its continued use as a place that supports public enjoyment and interaction within a natural setting. The Preserve is continually utilized for educational outings and research opportunities, and is a favorite spot for people to walk or bring their pets. Even with all of those activities happening, you are still likely to observe many species of wildlife, including moose, beavers, bears, and over a hundred species of birds.

This preserve has a passport!
