CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - About 10,000 acres of sage grouse habitat in Natrona County is being protected from most development.

The Stock Growers Land Trust announced it completed a conservation easement on the Arrowhead Ranch.

The transaction was completed in late August in collaboration with the ranch owners, Simon Farm and Land Company.

The conservation easement was fully donated but a portion of the third-party transaction costs were paid for with the help of a grant from the Wyoming Wildlife and Natural Resource Trust.
