Clear Creek Addition to Nevada Lake WMA

Acquisitions, Trades & Leases

11/12/2015

Region 2 FWP seeks public review and comment on its proposal to acquire fee title to 760 acres from The Nature Conservancy, as an addition to FWP’s adjacent 740-acre Nevada Lake Wildlife Management Area (WMA), located southeast of Helmville in Powell County. This property would add to the elk and deer winter range of the WMA, increase access to surrounding public lands, and is a critical property for large-scale wildlife connectivity. A draft environmental assessment has been prepared describing this proposal. FWP will hold a public hearing in Helmville on Thursday, November 19 at 6:30 p.m. at the Helmville Community Center (201 S Main St [Hwy 271], Helmville) to discuss the proposal, answer questions, and take public comment.
