JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - The Jackson Hole Land Trust protected more than 500 acres from development in 2014.

The Jackson Hole News&Guide; reports (http://bit.ly/1HldbjK ) that the easements cover eight properties totaling 562 acres, nearly all of it in Teton County.

Some of the easements cover water bodies and riverbeds. The land trust says they provide critical habitat for moose, swans and aquatic creatures.

Fred Staehr is president of the board of the land trust. He says 2014 has been a very successful and active year. He credits the conservation landowners and other supports the trust works with.
