| Why It Is A Conservation Priority
This conservation agreement prohibits development and protects wildlife habitat along Warm Springs Creek and a spring-fed pond on the property. The agreement benefits an array of wildlife including elk, deer, rainbow trout, and Wood River Sculpin. Protecting the area from development will guard against erosion on the banks of Warm Springs Creek during high water events and allow the riparian area to function naturally. The native trees, shrubs, and grasses along the creek also provide food and nesting cover for migratory birds such as yellow warblers and common yellow throats and year-round residents like song sparrows.
