| Why It Is A Conservation Priority:
The Lower Broadford easement is 8 acres of land lying one mile southwest of the city of Bellevue.The property currently has an area used for grazing horses, that lies west of the sensitive riparian habitat. In addition to riparian habitat, woodlands are located on the property. Protecting this land connects it to other nearby protected property, which extends the efforts of the Wood River Land Trust to provide a natural habitat for fish and wildlife. The easement helps protect the river for flood management, trout fisheries, and water quality. This area also supports precious wintering habitat for elk, deer, moose, cougar, and bald eagle. It also provides habitat for the sensitive Western Toad, which is considered a species of special concern.
Restoration & Improvement Goals:
