Conservation Deal Inked for Jackson Ranch

A new conservation easement will help protect 153 acres on a dude ranch near Jackson Hole. The Jackson Hole Land Trust says the land conserved on the Red Rock Ranch will help protect habitat for bald eagles, elk, mule deer, antelope, moose and cutthroat trout. A conservation easement restricts future development. Nonprofit groups buy conservation easements or sometimes landowners donate them. The Red Rock Ranch deal capped a year in which the land trust protected almost 440 acres through conservation easements.
