Land Trusts Adds Protection

by Jackson Hole Radio News

The Jackson Hole Land Trust protected 191 acres of land in Teton County in 2018, rounding out another successful year of conservation in Northwest Wyoming. Three separate properties comprised the 191 acres that were protected, with conservation gains for wildlife habitat, migration corridors and ranching heritage. Together these projects protect 112 acres for elk, 40 for moose, 35 for mule deer and sage grouse, 103 acres of elk calving habitat, and 1.5 acres of wetlands. The acreage adds to the existing 55,000 acres of Land Trust – protected conservation easements across Northwest Wyoming. Jackson Hole Land Trust also worked with the Town of Jackson last year to sponsor an Environmental Assessment for Karns Meadow in an effort to move forward on the original intent of the property to be a low-impact public space with pathways.
