There are no conservation easements on the ranch at this time. However, the neighboring ranch has placed a Sage Grouse Easement on their ranch and the State of Montana has an active program available for suitable habitat offering up to 40% of the appraised value for the easement placement. These programs typically take at least a year to be approved for a ranch. Any Buyer should do their own research to determine the feasibility of being granted a Sage Grouse Easement on the ranch.
