JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — The Jackson Hole Land Trust will use a $3 million grant from the U.S. Forest Service to buy conservation easements.

The easements will be located on acreage near Munger Mountain south of Jackson.

Land trust land protection manager Liz Long says the amount of property the grant will preserve is being determined through an appraisal.

The money will come from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Forest Legacy Program.

Since 1990, the Forest Legacy Program has preserved more than 2.3 million acres.

A conservation easement will limit development of the property.
