2015 Ed and Carmen NorthenEd and Carmen Northern moved to the Wood River Valley in June, 2003. Since they had lived near the ocean for so many years, they thought they would visit the Valley and experience the mountain winter before taking the plunge. They moved here for two years and fell in love with the un-crowded spaces, the nearness of the Big Wood River and Silver Creek, and easily accessible mountain ranges for hiking, fishing, mountain biking and camping.

The two of them are committed to being good stewards of the Land Trust’s Boxcar Bend and Draper Wood River Preserve, and they have spent countless hours maintaining trails, pulling weeds, and performing other land management duties.

Of their association with the Land Trust, Carmen notes that they liked the idea of being involved with a local conservation group




"It seemed a natural choice to team up on projects since we have the same goals in wanting to protect the river and the wild areas of the valley."
