    Zion National Park will acquire a private land parcel to fend off any development — but 3,400 acres remain at risk

    Spread across Zion National Park is a patchwork of private parcels, complicating park management and enabling potential trophy homes to rise in otherwise wild landscapes.

    One of those “inholdings,” a 35-acre piece at Firepit Knoll near Zion’s Hop Valley trailhead, is to become part of the park under a deal announced Monday by the nonprofits Trust for Public Landand National Park Foundation.

    ”The investment we make now will deliver for many years to come,” said Diane Regas, the trust’s president. “We want national parks to be for everybody. They are the most majestic public lands and essential to us as a country. If the parks are whole, we can manage them for everybody.”
