New Gallatin Valley Land Trust Conservation Easement Protects Prime Soils

Gallatin Valley Land Trust and Lloyd Harris have teamed up to conserve 229 acres of prime soils, important wildlife habitat and valuable open lands. GVLT reports that Lloyd has owned and farmed his property since the 1970s and his vision has always been to see his land protected. The prime agricultural soil, wildlife habitat, and incredible scenery that make up the 229-acre Madison Plateau parcel are now protected forever. GVLT is extremely grateful for the opportunity to help Lloyd turn his vision into a reality. The Harris Farm represents GVLT’s 115th conservation easement for a grand total of 49,551 acres conserved
