64.62 ACRES ADJACENT TO THE D.C. BOOTH FISH HATCHERY

In the face of growing development pressure, the Booth Society Inc. launched an initiative to protect the watershed, habitat and historic integrity of the beloved D.C. Booth hatchery. The Booth Society Land Acquisition Campaign has already raised $350,000 of the $642,500 purchase price.  To complete the project, the 501(c)(3) is asking for the help and generosity of hatchery supporters like you.

With your renewed support the Booth Society Land Acquisition team intends to pay off the remaining balance of $300,000 within a year. Please continue to stand with us as we enter the final phase of this exciting campaign.

This pristine, undeveloped piece of land sits adjacent to the D.C. Booth Historic National Fish Hatchery & Archives. Its 64.62 acres are important to many species of native and migratory birds, plants and wildlife including the rare Black Hills mountain snail (Oreohelix cooperi). 

Conserving this property will:

  • Expand existing interpretation and visitor and youth education opportunities.
  • Enhance wildlife habitat.
  • Protect the hatchery watershed and ground water supply.
  • Prevent houses from overlooking the historic property.
  • Secure pristine upland prairie and scattered ponderosa forest from development.

Together, we can conserve, preserve, and protect this land for FUTURE GENERATIONS.

We need your help.  Please consider making a donation today, large or small.

Thank you for your support!

Opportunity for recreational and education use could include expanding existing nature trails, environmental and cultural resource interpretation, youth education programs, wildlife observation/photography, and promotion of natural resource and conservation programs.
