JACKSON, Wyoming — A group in Jackson Hole says it helped to secure more than 500 acres of conservation easements in that area last year.

A conservation easement is an agreement restricting future development on a property. The idea is to help conserve the property as wildlife habitat or open space.

The Jackson Hole Land Trust says it secured conservation easements on eight properties totaling 562 acres last year. Recently donated conservation easements total 35, 88 and 46 acres.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports (http://bit.ly/1HldbjK ) some of the easements cover riverbeds and other bodies of water that are critical habitat for moose and swans.
