Double Springs Ranch

Partners: Landowners, Doris Tunney

The majority of Double Springs Ranch, approximately 550 of its 640 acres, is pivot-irrigated cropland used mainly to grow grass for Angus cows. The Ranch is also an inholding - a piece of land surrounded on all sides by public lands. The sage scrub flats located at the east and west ends the property provide extensive habitat for a variety of birds and mammals, and the surrounding lands have been designated by the BLM as winter range for elk. The property has been identified as important habitat for several species of concern, such as the pygmy rabbit, lynx, and the gray wolf. The conservation easement between the landowner and Wood River Land Trust prohibits subdivision of the Ranch to protect the land for farming and wildlife habitat.
