Utah wildlife habitat, migration corridor permanently protected

Posted March 9, 2021

“Nearly 4,900 acres of prime elk habitat in north central Utah is now forever protected thanks to a conservation-minded landowner, the USDA Forest Service, Utah Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands (FFSL) and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.

“The property, divided up into two separate nearby tracts, is roughly 40 miles east of Spanish Fork in the Wasatch Mountain Range. Bordered on three sides by the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest, it provides spring, summer and winter range for elk and is also a crucial calving area. Additionally, it is an important migration corridor for elk and mule deer alike.”
