Two multi-year habitat restoration projects beginning in 2021 will bring changes to the land at Bald Hill Farm and trail closures during operations.
Greenbelt Land Trust acquired Bald Hill Farm in 2013 after a successful community campaign to preserve this important place for people and nature in the mid-Willamette Valley. In 2015, the adjacent Mulkey Ridge Forest property was acquired, preserving a public trail connection from Bald Hill Farm to Fitton Green Natural Area.
Both properties are at the core of Benton County’s Habitat Conservation Plan, and were funded in part through the Bonneville Power Administration’s Wildlife Mitigation Program, with an agreement that restoration projects for priority prairie and oak habitats at these sites would be undertaken.
