181 Acres Protected As Conservation Easement

November 8, 2013 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Teton County No Comments
Land Trust

The Jackson Hole Land Trust has announced 181 acres on East Gros Ventre Butte have been permanently protected as the first phase of an initiative to conserve more than 400 acres of land there. The 181 acre easement is located on the northeastern end of East Gros Ventre Butte, previously owned by Gerry, Helen, and Michael Halpin.  The property includes five potential home sites and associated access roads that could have been constructed across the face of the butte. The Land Trust says the property is a central wildlife migration corridor and provides habitat for sage grouse, mule deer, moose, bighorn sheep, songbirds and many other wildlife species. In the Trust’s announcement, it was stated that much of the acreage on the butte is under private ownership and at risk of potential development or other land use activities that could adversely affect its wildlife habitat and scenic values.
