Thad Peters Conservation Easement
Located at Kilroy Bay, the Thad Peters conservation property is one of the largest undeveloped parcels on the lake’s eastern shore. And thanks to the Peters family and your Conservancy, it is now shielded from unwanted development forever. The property contains trees up to 150 years old as well as two small streams that cascade down its slopes, bringing cold, clear water to Lake Pend Oreille. Bordered by the Panhandle National Forest on two sides, the property buffers Schafer Peak and the Green Monarch mountains from nearby development. The Miller conservation property (see below) adjoins it.
This breath-taking property provides abundant natural wildlife habitat from elk and mountain goats to bald eagles and quaking aspens. Notably, 95% of north Idaho’s native plants and tree species are found within the property!
Visible from up and down the lake, this expanse of healthy forests and meadows is visible to thousands of people on and across the lake.
