Project Description

The two adjoining McAfee conservation easements protect critical winter range and migration corridor habitat for the Round Valley mule deer herd. This includes good stands of bitterbrush, a key food source during the winter months. Other wildlife such as mountain lion, coyote, bobcat, long-tailed weasel, and western rattlesnake can be found here as well.

This property is adjacent to other ESLT conservation easements, and borders Inyo National Forest land and a deep gorge containing a creek and abundant wildlife habitat.
