BTNF acquires 240-acre Loomis Park Ranch in Sublette County
September 13, 2020
The Conservation Fund, U.S. Forest Service and Jackson Hole Land Trust announced the addition of 240-acre Loomis Park Ranch to the Bridger-Teton National Forest in northwest Wyoming. This conservation effort was made possible through funding from the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund, which was permanently and fully funded by the Great American Outdoors Act, enacted in August. The fund is a bipartisan, federal program that uses a percentage of proceeds from offshore oil and gas royalties to acquire critical lands and protect natural resources and recreational access. The acquisition will protect big game migration corridors and will be added to the Beaver Twin grazing allotment.
