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.

Two ranch families were essential partners in conserving this extraordinary place.
