Lands Transferred from Public to Private Ownership


The Department of Agriculture recently transferred several isolated properties in Fall River County into private hands.  These properties were previously under the care of the Buffalo Gap National Grasslands and the BLM.

The map above shows in red the locations of these properties. All are in the south half of the county, most of them have little accessibility.

If you plan to hunt or hike in these areas please check the updated map book or the online interactive map, or contact the GIS Department at 605-745-7584 to ensure that you do not trespass on these recently purchase properties.
