Progress towards Acquisition

Stokes Nature Center is outgrowing our little cabin in the woods. Much to our delight we have been working with the City of Logan and the Forest Service to acquire four buildings at Second Dam. These buildings, which were recently slated for demolition, can instead be upgraded to an accessible welcome center, vibrant nature classroom, and on-site offices for staff. These new facilities will allow Stokes Nature Center to continue to expand our programs and services to the community and Cache Valley visitors.

On November 21st we presented our proposal  to the Logan City Council, and it was APPROVED to move on to a Public Hearing. However, the process was postponed due to an existing mitigation issue. This mitigation plan has now been submitted to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for review, and we anticipate the issue being resolved within 90 days. So stay tuned for more updates!

We continue to thank the Logan City Council for considering this exciting project and especially want to thank our community for being a part of making this long held vision a reality.
