The FCFP manage the Tom Rider Trust for Rider Park. There is uncertainty on how the FCFP ended up with managing the Rider Park Trust because they are money managers, not land managers. Originally, this was why there was a Rider Park Board that included a Nature Specialist, Law Enforcement, and a member of the Rider Family. This Board was disbanded when disagreement over gas leasing at Rider Park surfaced; a new Board was appointed. When the public became aware that Rider Park was in danger of being leased there was an outcry which helped to ensure any lease would be a non evasive lease.
