The Pioneer Moon Ranch conservation easement is located at the base of the Pioneer Mountains in the East Fork drainage.  The property features open pastures favored by deer and elk, and riparian areas along the East Fork, which provide habitat for birds and fish, including the at-risk Wood River sculpin.  Protection of the river helps to recharge the underground aquifer, manage flooding, and provide better water quality for fish.
