The Sagebrush Steppe Land Trust is pleased to announce the completion of its latest conservation project near Preston.
The easements permanently protect more than 1,033 acres of working land and wildlife habitat. This includes 25 acres of wetland, 250 acres of farmland and 600 acres of open space and rangeland. The easements also protect one mile of Mink Creek from being subdivided or developed, said officials.
“Keeping land intact is becoming increasingly important in Southeast Idaho as development fragments family farms and critical wildlife habitat,” said Joselin Matkins, the Land Trust’s Executive Director.
