The Value of Open Space
We live in a unique corner of the earth. Here we find good neighbors, clean air and water, abundant wildlife, wide-open spaces, recreational opportunities, and a rich cultural history. The Prickly Pear Land Trust is committed to the belief that protection of open space is essential to the well-being of our community. Open views of Mt. Helena and the Elkhorn Mountains, productive agricultural land, and healthy riparian corridors revitalize our human spirits. The multitude of recreational opportunities in the mountains and hills that surround the Prickly Pear Valley make this a wonderful area in which to work, play and raise families.
