| Why It Is A Conservation Priority:
Cloverly Ranch is 27 acres of forested riparian habitat located north of Hailey visible from Highway 75. This area provides vital wintering habitat for elk, mule deer, and moose and is potential habitat for North American wolverine, a species listed under the Endangered Species Act, and bald eagle. In addition, this conservation easement protects a portion of the Big Wood River that has been identified as high priority for trout habitat. Protecting the floodplain and riparian corridor improves water quality and allows the river to function and meander naturally. This conservation easement also protects working agricultural lands, which are currently used as horse pasture. There is a public access trail along the Big Wood River on this property providing forest and rural views.
Restoration & Improvement Goals:
