Martin Place Conservation Easement completed (posted 10/1/14)
Sublette County ranch conserved for agricultural production in perpetuity
Wyoming Stock Growers Land Trust
The Wyoming Stock Growers Land Trust completed the Martin Place project conserving 840 acres of productive rangeland in Sublette County. The Martin Place conservation easement, which closed on September 26, complements 14 conservation easements in Sublette County held by the Stock Growers Land Trust and results in a new total of 38,312 acres under easement in that county. This total includes three easements already completed by landowner Maggie Miller as part of the Sommers Grindstone project. As with the others, the Martin Place conservation easement will ensure the ranch’s compatibility with agriculture and prevents the ranch from being converted to non-agricultural uses in the future.
The Martin Place has a rich variety of plant and animal diversity as it lies between Bridger-Teton National Forest and the Green River. South Beaver Creek and its tributaries provide abundant riparian habitat for a number of nesting songbirds, raptors, waterfowl, and shore birds. The surrounding uplands provide terrestrial habitat for a number of sage brush obligate species including Greater Sage Grouse. The eastern portion of the ranch is encompassed by the Daniel Sage Grouse Core Area and has been determined by the Wyoming Game and Fish department to provide suitable spring, summer and fall habitat for elk and winter-yearlong habitat for moose.
This project was made possible by funding from the Wyoming Wildlife and Natural Resource Trust, The Natural Resources Conservation Service, along with an in-kind donation from the land owner. Bob Budd, Executive Director of the Wyoming Wildlife and Natural Resource Trust, said, "This is another great example of a long-time Wyoming ranch conserving important wildlife habitat, while at the same time assuring a future for Wyoming agriculture. Hats off to Maggie and the Stock Growers Land Trust for completing this deal."
State Conservationist, and current administrator of NRCS easement programs in Wyoming, Ron Alvarado said, "The Natural Resources Conservation Service is pleased to partner with the Stock Growers Land Trust in the conservation of important agricultural land in Wyoming. We appreciate the continued work with our partners and private landowners as we work together through the Farm Bill program administration and review process. We thank Ms. Miller for her commitment to conserve land in critically important sage grouse habitat."
Following Friday’s closing in Pinedale, Maggie Miller said, "Again, I have a tremendous amount of gratitude to Wyoming Stock Growers Land Trust, WWNRTF and NRCS for supporting the Martin Place conservation easement. It's gratifying to know that the Martin Place lands will always be in agriculture and conservation for generations to come."
Stock Growers Land Trust Executive Director Pamela Dewell said, "We thank Maggie Miller for her choice to conserve land in critical sage grouse habitat. We are also very grateful to DC- and Oregon-based staff for recognizing the importance of this project. Finally, we are very appreciative of the patience of landowners whose projects have been delayed due to reviews of Farm Bill program administration and look forward to closing several other projects in the very near future."

PAC construction project update (posted 10/1/14)
Pinedale Aquatic Center
PAC is pleased to be enhancing the facility with a nearly 8000 square foot addition on the south side of our gymnasium. This addition will be at all three PAC levels. Basement space includes freight entry, file storage, 2 offices and equipment storage. At the gymnasium level, there will be a vestibule with south-side egress that will include restrooms, a water fountain and much needed storage space for PAC supplies and equipment. Opening off of the track at PAC’s second level, there will be a large studio room, capable of being divided into two functional spaces. There will also be a small fitness equipment storage room adjacent to this second story activity space. We anticipate being able to occupy these new spaces by late winter/early spring.
Look for weekly updates posted on the Director’s Blog at www.pinedaleaquatic.com to see the latest pictures of building progress.
We do not anticipate any interruptions of service for our patrons during construction. There may be some modifications made to the gym or track area during a brief time when the existing building is penetrated in order to tie in the new spaces.
PAC patrons will enjoy the new studio space for fitness activity, as well as the clutter free gym floor during all gymnasium programming! PAC Staff is excited about being able to offer more of what our patrons desire by way of days and times for favorite classes and activities, and more available open gym time for all patrons.
Should you have any questions about our new construction project, do not hesitate to visit with PAC Director, JJ Huntley.
