American Prairie is pleased to announce the purchase of the Two Crow Ranch, located 30 miles north of Winnett, Montana, and comprised of 5,002 acres of private land and 41,273 acres of leased public land. The organization’s 26th land deal brings the total number of deeded and leased acres stewarded by the organization to more than 399,000.
Gerrity says the unit’s recreation policies will be determined by the organization over the next year, with the goal of welcoming the public onto American Prairie’s deeded acres in a safe and open way. In addition, he notes, the public lands contained within the Two Crow are and will forever remain open to the public.
“We look forward to evaluating the recreation opportunities of this new area and sharing more about our plans in the near future,” Gerrity adds.
He also notes the significant drought and wildfires affecting Central and Eastern Montana, adding how heartening it has been to see neighbors, towns and counties banding together, and support coming in from across the country for affected communities.
“We look forward to being good neighbors in Petroleum County,” he adds.
