The Jackson Hole Land Trust and Teton Raptor Center announced today that the 27-acre iconic conservation property of Hardeman Barns in Wilson, Wyoming, has transferred to the Teton Raptor Center. In 1989, a groundswell of community support generated $1.7 million in 4 months to enable the JHLT to purchase the property, safeguarding it from a dense 70-unit subdivision. The community’s ultimate vision was to utilize the iconic space as a hub for nonprofit organizations that give back to the local community through education and research. The Teton Raptor Center fulfills that vision completely.
