Nature Conservancy adds 4,300-acre easement along the Rocky Mountain Front

The Rocky Mountain Front continues to be a success story, now with more plains grizzly bear habitat protected. The last Congress greatly reduced the likihood of oil and gas development dangers.

See the AP story.

The Front still faces problems — off road vehicles and potential sub-divisions.

The Nature Conservancy always plays a cautious game, and a lot of people think it bends over way too far for ranching. However, on the Front they have played a big role guaranteeing there is still one place grizzly bears can roam onto the plains.
