| Why It Is A Conservation Priority
The majority of Double Springs Ranch, approximately 550 of its 640 acres, is pivot-irrigated cropland used to grow specialty horse hay. The Ranch is also an inholding - a piece of land surrounded on all sides by public lands. These surrounding lands have been designated by the BLM as winter range for elk. In addition the sage scrub flats located at the east and west ends the property provide extensive habitat for a variety of birds and mammals. The property has been identified as important habitat for species of concern, such as the pygmy rabbit, lynx, and the gray wolf. The voluntary agreement between Doris and Wood River Land Trust prohibits subdivision of the Ranch to protect the land for farming and wildlife habitat.
