Neilson Ranch

Neilson Ranch

The Neilson Ranch easements preserve a broad swath of riparian forest along the Snake River corridor. These properties protect crucial winter and year-round habitat for moose and seasonal habitat for elk and mule deer, as well as a heavily trafficked elk migration corridor. Many other species use the properties throughout the year including raptors, neotropical migrant songbirds, mammals such as badgers and coyotes, and several species of amphibians.
