Bridgerland Audubon advocates for the preservation of public lands and open spaces. We worked with Rocky Mountain Power/PacifiCorp and The Nature Conservancy to create a conservation easement for the Bear River Bottoms. This easement was one of the founding properties used to establish the Bear River Land Conservancy.
Bridgerland Audubon also worked with Rocky Mountain Power/PacifiCorp to acquire the Amalga Barrens Sanctuary property.

We encourage use of the US Fish & Wildlife refuges:
Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge
Bear Lake National Wildlife Refuge
Ouray National Wildlife Refuge
