The Picabo Ranch conservation easement is located in the southeast portion of the Bellevue Triangle.  Riparian and wetland habitat associated with Silver Creek are located on the property, which provide habitat connectivity for wildlife with a neighboring nature preserve. Picabo Ranch supports extensive wintering grounds for elk, deer, and moose, and several species of concern such as bald eagle, trumpeter swan, and Wood River sculpin have been observed in close proximity.  A portion of the ranch has been designated as prime farmland and is currently used for agriculture.
