A diverse number of wildlife species inhabit the preserve. Mule deer, elk, moose, sage grouse, Bonneville Cutthroat trout, beaver, Bald eagles, coyotes, small mammals such as meadow jumping mice, wood rats and others occur here. In 2013, pronghorn arrived for the first time! The Preserve provides nesting and brood-rearing habitat for sage grouse with four leks adjacent to the Preserve where males congregate and display.

Due to deer entanglement and grouse collisions, we have been converting our fences to wildlife friendly fencing. We are changing to barbless wire and using fences that lay down in winter to avoid these mortalities.
