Press release

The Trust for Public Land announced today that an additional 13,097 acres of the Cienega and HYL Ranches have been protected through the purchase of a conservation easement. This newly protected land is part of a unique and exceptional ecosystem and landscape. Today's action brings the total area protected in these ranches to 19,140 acres following a first project at Cienega Ranch completed last year. The project will conserve high-quality native grasslands and critical wildlife habitat, while keeping the land as a working cattle ranch. The protected land is immediately adjacent to the Fort Bowie National Historic Site and the Bowie Mountain Scenic Area of Critical Environmental Concern.
