Kaniksu Land Trust Works With Kalispel Tribe on Land Restoration Project

This is a story of conservation on 75 acres of land named the Moose Mountain parcel that shifted from a possible conservation easement held by Kaniksu Land Trust to a heritage site owned by the Kalispel Tribe. 

The Sandpoint Reader article starts with this: When William Haberman, managing member of Valiant Idaho, LLC, which owns The Idaho Club, approached Kaniksu Land Trust about placing a parcel of the company’s land in a conservation agreement in the fall of 2021, the goal was to protect the property as open space and natural habitat from encroaching development.

The rest of the story is well told in the Sandpoint Reader.
