HUNTSVILLE, Utah — The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) held a ribbon cutting ceremony Friday to celebrate Cinnamon Creek, its newest wildlife management area.

The DWR took ownership of the land in June after submitting the winning bid at a public auction in November of last year. 

Cinnamon Creek is located 15 miles south of Hardware Wildlife Management Area. The 8,107 acres of land is near the border of Cache and Weber counties. 

“Obtaining the property is a major win for wildlife and wildlife enthusiasts,” said Daniel Olson, regional habitat manager for the DWR in a news release. 

“When the Utah School and Institutional Trust Lands Administration put the property up for bid last fall, plenty of parties, including private developers, wanted it. Fortunately, conservation groups, a federal partner and the Utah Legislature, led by Rep. Casey Snider, came through with the funding needed to win the bid and preserve the area for wildlife.”

According to the DWR, the land is named for a creek that runs through the area. Additionally, Cinnamon Creek has a canyon full of thick, heavy forest, that runs through it. The land provides summer range for mule deer, moose and elk.

The DWR says Cinnamon Creek is the 193rd wildlife management area in Utah.
