SUMMIT LAND CONSERVANCY

 

Summit Land Conservancy has about five weeks to raise nearly half a million dollars to purchase land near the Weber River. The conservancy has 106 acres of land under contract in Peoa, on Wooden Shoe Lane.

Cheryl Fox is the executive director of the organization. She said they hope to convert the land into a public access nature preserve, by adding trails and access to the river. 

“We think this is going to be sort of a lovely place if people want to go walk in the shade, look at the river, fish in the river” she said.
