The Wood River Ranch Conservation Easement project closed December 12, 2012. The conservation easement will conserve 380 acres of ranchland in Park County. This project is a donated easement that has conserved scenic sagebrush covered uplands, a riparian corridor associated with the aesthetic Wood River, and productive hay meadows that produce winter feed for livestock.
This property serves as an important wildlife habitat for a number of big game species including elk, moose, mule deer and white tailed deer, which can be viewed regularly on the property.
Travelers heading to and from the Shoshone National Forest will always and forever have the opportunity to enjoy the scenery, and solitude, that this property offers. The protection of this land will ensure that beautiful mountain vistas, prime wildlife habitat, and productive ranchland will remain unaltered in perpetuity.
