Buyok Ranch Conservation Easement

The Sheridan Community Land Trust celebrated a new Conservation Easement Saturday at the Buyok Ranch near the historic town-site of Monarch, north of Sheridan.

John and Vanessa Buyok granted the easement of their 844 acre ranch, near the Tongue River, to the Land Trust protecting it from any further development or subdivisions, keeping the land the way it is... forever.

Colin Betzler, Director of the Sheridan Community Land Trust describes what they do.

John Buyok knows the value of land.

Visitors parked at the Kleenburn Recreation Area, then hopped on the Sheridan Trolley which shuttled visitors back and forth every 15 minutes. During the short ride over to the Buyok Ranch, Billie Little treated guests to a quick history of the area. Once there, guests were served dessert and drinks under an outdoor tent.
