The Kelly Reservoir conservation easement protects wetland and sagebrush-steppe habitat utilzed by many species of migratory birds, waterfowl, and big game animals. Hundreds of sage-grouse have been sighted on the property, in addition to pronghorn and trumpeter swans. The property is in the vicinity of the Idaho Department of Fish and Game’s Centennial Marsh Wildlife Management Area, known for its large expanse of wetlands. Dr. Ralph Campanale donated this conservation easement as a way to permanently preserve the nature of the property in perpetuity.
