"Little guys" really can make a difference! A small group of rural landowners who wanted to protect their ranching livelihood and the local landscape formed a partnership and began the process of creating a conservation easement. Unique features protected from development include a dinosaur track, and tepee rings. This conservation easement is also in close proximity to the Overland Trail. This land is not open to the public.

When only the development rights of a property are purchased, as in the case of a conservation easement, any future development of that land is limited. The landowner continues to manage the property, and the land remains on the tax rolls. Land with a conservation easement is not generally open to the public because it is still in private ownership.
* The conservation easement on this property is monitored by the Legacy Land Trust.
