The easement includes seven miles of the Duchesne River, two mountain ranges and sage brush habitat that provides a haven for endangered greater sage-grouse. Conservation Easement also ensures the preservation of ancient Native American petroglyphs carved by the ancestors of the Ute tribes. The land held special significance to Young Living Founder D. Gary Young, who named it the River Ranch. Gary grew up in the mountainous wilderness of Idaho. He always loved spending time with family and friends on mountain adventures. Preserving this beautiful part of Utah is a legacy grounded in that passion. Gary had a deep love of nature and wild places, which is why Young Living is committed to preserving and protecting vital habitat for wildlife, as well as for current and future generations to enjoy.
We are grateful to The Nature Conservancy for working with us to protect this special place. We also appreciate the support we received from the citizens of Tabiona, Hanna and other surrounding communities. In Gary Young’s honor, Young Living dedicated the property as the D. Gary Young Wildlife Sanctuary. The sanctuary is one of several commitments Young Living has made to honor Gary’s legacy and its ongoing commitment to sustainability.
