The land is excellent habitat for elk.

Lazuli Bunting is one species found on this project land.

It takes a team to put together a project this ambitious. Gene Coughlin, Tracy Manley, Steve Kloetzel (TNC), Chris Bryant (TNC), Jay Kolbe (FWP), Camille Coughlin, and Jay Coughlin.

Working ranches and forests are part of this project.
