curlew valley

Dotted with homesteads built by early settlers, the Curlew National Grassland is the only National Grassland in the Intermountain West. The over 47,000 acres of sagebrush steppe was purchased between 1934 and 1942 to improve soil and vegetation quality. Today the land is managed by the Caribou-Targhee National Forest Service with an emphasis on grazing livestock, watershed management, wildlife, and shorebirds.

The Curlew Valley is comprised of both public and private land stretching from Snowville, Utah northward into Idaho across a wide valley that was once the bottom of Bonneville Lake. This landscape is important for waterfowl, shorebirds, and upland game; including sharptailed grouse and greater sage-grouse.

The Sagebrush Steppe Land Trust is working to build and develop relationships with landowners interested in conservation in this landscape.
