Fir Creek Ranch

The only large acreage inholdings along the Buffalo Valley Road, the heritage of the working lands safeguards the beautiful and dramatic views to the west of Mount Moran and the Teton range in Grand Teton National Park; Easement protection ensures that the inholding properties will continue to contribute to, and function with, the landscape scale ecology that plays out on the surrounding forest service land and nearby Teton Wilderness
