Whatever you're saving "Thank you" for saving it from the likes of McDonalds and 7-11! It seems that every mile of our land is being taken up by a company hoping to make more money. We have very little untouched land left for our kids to enjoy. Thanks again!

" Forever Wild bought the property from The Nature Conservancy for more than $1.5 million, Lein said. The nonprofit conservancy, which previously helped save Jackson County's Walls of Jericho canyon, purchased the riverfront land from the Prince family in May 2006 and has been holding it for the state."
