The first parcel protected by the Land Trust was a 160-acre allotment at the head of the Agulukpak River on Lake Beverley within Wood-Tikchik State Park. The parcel, originally owned by Harvey Samuelson of Dillingham, was sold to The Conservation Fund. The Richard and Rhoda Goldman Fund provided financial assistance for the purchase.
The ownership of the parcel was conveyed to the State of Alaska subject to a conservation easement conveyed to the Land Trust. The easement prohibits permanent structures and limits the amount of public use.
The acquisition of the parcel protects an historic site as well as preserves shoreline along one of Alaska’s most popular rainbow fishing rivers. Robert Osborne provided a donation to the stewardship fund for the perpetual protection of this property.
