Eden Valley Today
Eden Valley from a Distance
During the 1980's, farmers and ranchers were encouraged to change
irrigation methods to increase efficiency and reduce salinity in
the watershed. Today, ranching operations grow hay and
small grains to winter the livestock or sell throughout the region.
Some who are not employed in agriculture work for the school,
various government offices and small businesses located here.
In recent years, increasing numbers of residents who live on
small acreages or ranches commute to Rock Springs and Green
River to work. Gas exploration nearby provides work for
area residents and a boost for the local economy.
Settlers would be proud to know that Eden Valley, almost one
hundred years later, is an oasis in the desert, just as they
dreamed it would be.
