NORTH LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- A generous act by a North Logan family will be a gift for generations to come.

The Huchel family sold 19 and a half acres at the mouth of Green Canyon to North Logan City rather than selling it to developers.

The land will become the Andrew King Jr. Nature Park.

About 30 family members, descendants of the park's namesake, gathered yesterday for the dedication of the park.

The park features a walking trail, large amounts of untouched land and is situated near the Bonneville Shoreline Trail. There are also a wide range of geological formations on the land, including the old quarry where stone was taken for use in building the Logan LDS Temple.
