Inholding Near Alpine Preserved

The Conservation Fund

The U.S. Forest Service, in partnership with The Conservation Fund and the Halpin family of Jackson, Wyoming, has along with funding from the Land and Water Conservation Fund permanently protected 315 acres within Caribou-Targhee National Forest. The land, known as the McCoy Creek property, is located approximately two miles west of Palisades Reservoir near Alpine, and is completely surrounded by national forest. It had been previously approved for the development of 11 homes and was the centerpiece of a controversial land exchange proposal. The Forest Service’s purchase will keep homes away from areas prone to wildfires. The Land and Water Conservation Fund is a bipartisan, federal program that uses a percentage of proceeds from offshore oil and gas royalties – not taxpayer dollars – to acquire critical lands and protect natural resources.

  • My hunting dog has been pouting - September 15, 2014
    I finally got my dog out for a day of hunting last week. It was almost too late. She’s been pouting for months, and I realized a while ago it was because I hadn’t gotten her on a bird since last November. I figured it out when I took her out to get her tuned […]
