Protecting Pine Ridge – Worthy conservation

Forever protected: That’s the new status of nearly three square miles of the Pine Ridge near Fort Robinson State Park, thanks to landowners and the Nebraska Land Trust.   Ranches in the beautiful area are under pressure to subdivide land for residential development. The trust purchased voluntary conservation easements on ranchland owned by Gary and Nancy Fisher in Dawes County, and Sioux County land owned by Chief Dull Knife College, to protect it from future residential or recreational development.
