Alice Nature Park

The Alice Nature Park is an 11 acre green space located at 100 West 2600 South in Nibley UT, just off Hwy 165. We are proud to be working with Bio-West on a comprehensive ecological design which will enhance the native flora and fauna for our visitors, students and wildlife to enjoy; passing on Alice's love for her land to future generations.

The Alice Nature Park is moving forward!

Restoration activities begin in the spring with the removal of invasive species and the planting of native shrubs, plants, and trees in the wetland and upland meadow areas of the project. Plants are selected based on historical records, as well as soil types and optimal species for fireflies, birds, and local wildlife.

On July 17, 2003, Alice Denney donated the land to Stokes Nature Center.

Alice's love of fruit trees prompted her to purchase land in Nibley where she cultivated a small orchard consisting of apricots, apples, and plums. Many of which are still in production today.

Over the years she was delighted with the wildlife that she saw on the land. To ensure the property would be protected for generations, she obtained a wildlife conservation easement which is held by the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources.
