“CONSERVATION IS A STATE OF HARMONY BETWEEN MEN AND LAND.”
- Aldo Leopold
Our mission at Yellowstone Bend Ranch is to protect this ecologically sensitive and historic land with careful stewardship. Whether the subject is farming, recreation or the built environment, we use "best practices" and constantly strive to find new ways to enhance and protect the natural environment
We have renovated the historic house and barn, saving natural resources and local history. We’ve removed miles of barbed wire fencing and added game-friendly perimeter fencing on known game trails, enhancing migratory paths instead of creating roadblocks, and improving habitat and recreational opportunities.
Yellowstone Bend is dedicated to preserving open space, and using the most environmentally friendly ranching and farming practices. We are particularly proud of the many acres of mature grassland that will help restore our ecosystem for upland game and other wildlife.
• LAND PRESERVATION
Montana's growth has spawned unsightly subdivisions on what was once open farmland. YBR, whose property runs from the Yellowstone River to a main county road, blocks eastward expansion of small scale development along the beautiful Yellowstone River, thus making the ranch a key player in preserving large open space, natural grassland and wildlife habitat.
