Henry's Lake Ranches & Wildlife

Recently, we've covered some upcoming events at Flat Ranch Preserve--and hope you can visit us at this beautiful place near Yellowstone this summer.Flat Ranch is only one small part of our work at Henry's Lake.

We're also working with area ranchers to keep them on the land, and to protect wildlife habitat for the well-known critters that move from Yellowstone through Henry's Lake to other public lands each year, escaping the inhospitable conditions of winter in the national park.

The above video, excerpted from a film called Out of Yellowstone, tells the brief story of one rancher on Henry's Lake. Dennis Moedl's Meadow Vue Ranch is not only important for wildlife, it also hosts kids each summer for a summer camp.

And on some summer evenings, you can visit the ranch for a local rodeo and delicious barbecue.

Your support of The Nature Conservancy keeps ranchers on the land and wildlife on the move. Visit Henry's Lake this summer to see how your investment is paying off.
