JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - Some 236 acres in Jackson Hole is now protected from development though a conservation easement secured by the Jackson Hole Land Trust.

The land on the Snake River Ranch is along the southern edge of the Jackson Hole valley south of the town of Jackson.

The conservation easement was supported by the U.S. Forest Service and the state of Wyoming. It preserves a migration corridor used by elk as well as riparian habitat along the Snake River.

Most of the $3 million used to acquire the property came from the Forest Service’s Forest Legacy Program.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports (https://bit.ly/1xfcHtF ) that another $600,000 came from the Wyoming Wildlife and Natural Resource Trust.

The undisclosed balance of the property’s value was donated by the ranch owners.
