The 60-acre Nipper unit is located within a sub-irrigated flat about four miles southwest of Mesa in Franklin County. The soil is highly alkaline and would be undesirable for farming. Grasses and shrubs were planted on the site shortly after it was purchased and the area provides good habitat for upland wildlife and non-game. The property abuts a parcel of BOR land commonly referred to as “Clark Pond”.
