“Transferring this property into public ownership will help ensure conservation of the valuable resources this land has to offer for future generations. Without the hard work and dedication of the Wilderness Trust and its partners this opportunity to enhance the Sheep Mountain Wilderness would not be possible. This is a true legacy opportunity made possible through public/private partnerships."
