Pyper Tracey Ranch

When we first took people from the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources to visit this property they were nearly salivating. An old oxbow of the Weber River still held old cottonwoods with a heron rookery. The Division hopes to restore the oxbow to improve trout habitat, and recently they relocated a rare Bald Eagle nest to this property.
