In collaboration with the Simon Farm and Land Company, the Stock Growers Land Trust completed a conservation easement on the Arrowhead Ranch in Natrona County in late August.
According to Bo Alley, Conservation Director for the Land Trust, “This easement will help protect key sage grouse habitat, and will limit development on approximately 10,000 acres.”
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.
The Arrowhead Ranch easement is the third easement the Land Trust holds in Natrona County.
Dear Wyoming Stock Growers Land Trust,
The Simon family would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your assistance in preserving the Arrowhead Ranch. This beautiful ranch in Power River WY is so special to us. It lies within the sage grouse core area and contains three leks. Mule deer and pronghorn are also plentiful here. Placing it in a perpetual easement with the Stock Growers Land Trust will allow our great grandchildren to see it exactly as it is today.
Sylvia, Tim, Emma, and Pete Simon
