bonners Ferry, IDAHO This week The Nature Conservancy in Idaho took a significant step toward the conservation of key wildlife habitat and prime timberland in North Idaho.  

The Conservancy acquired the 317-acre Hall Creek Forest at the base of Hall Mountain in northern Boundary County. The property provides excellent habitat for wildlife such as moose, elk and deer, as well as black bears and grizzly bears.  

As part of the Conservancy’s commitment to keep private timberlands working, the Conservancy’s long-term vision is to conduct restoration projects on Hall Creek Forest, place a conservation easement on the property and then seek a private conservation buyer for the property. The property will continue to be managed for sustainable timber harvest.  

Located adjacent to public land, the acquisition of Hall Creek Forest complements previous and ongoing work to conserve areas promoting wildlife movement.  The property has an abundance of large ponderosa pine, Douglas fir, hardwoods, and includes an extensive forested wetland. 

Robyn Miller, Senior Conservation Manager for The Nature Conservancy explains, “This project is a win-win situation for people and wildlife. The Hall Creek Forest will continue to provide logs to the mills and jobs to the local economy while protecting the wildlife Idahoans hold dear.”
