Overview

Summit springs Ranch in Idaho is one of the largest and most secluded ranches Beartooth owns – nearly six square miles (3,783 acres) almost completely surrounded by public lands. This property was brought to their attention by their restoration team and The Nature Conservancy (TNC). Beartooth reached an agreement with TNC prior to closing to exchange a conservation easement for a key piece of adjacent land that connects the noncontiguous tracts, secured access and added the best part of the fishery. The conservation easement protects 1,963 acres including all of the ranch’s globally rare alkali wetlands, rare plant occurrences and riparian resources while allowing flexibility to conduct ranching operations and build in two envelopes outside the sensitive riparian areas. This initial easement alone protects more than three times the acreage of TNC’s original holdings there, enabling the Conservancy to leverage what they owned into significantly more protected land. When Beartooth or a future owner protects the remainder of the ranch with a second easement, TNC will have six times the land under protection, a dramatic win for conservation.
