CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Stock Growers Land Trust has completed a conservation easement on 515 acres in Converse County.

The trust says in a news release that the easement involves the LaPrele Creek Ranch southwest of Douglas.

The ranch borders another ranch that the Stock Growers Land Trust had conserved earlier.

The trust says the conservation easement will protect migration corridors of mule deer and elk and also help ensure the protection of clean water sources, including natural springs that offer year round water sources for livestock and wildlife.
