The property and the Bear Basin Common Tenancy lie within the Bear Basin Conservation Easement (shaded white below) to preserve the wide range of habitat, wildlife, open spaces, scenic enjoyment and it’s agricultural values. Additionally it shares a border with 160 acre parcel of state land board land (shaded in blue) extending the playground further. Additional BLM lands (shaded yellow) adjoin the common tenancy lands extending the recreational opportunities from the land to over 3200 acres directly from the property.
One of the huge benefits of the property is the independence of a private setting while simultaneously preserving the opportunity of access and participation in an additional 2250 acres of private land that is solely shared by the owners within the Bear Basin Ranch in cooperation with the operations of the Bear Basin Pack Trips and Outfitting. Ownership within the Common Tenancy grants the owners of each parcel certain rights and privileges and easements for the recreational use and enjoyment of all parcels, as well as preserving and protecting the property in an environmentally sound manner and providing for the continued operation of the property as an agricultural property.
Details of the structure and benefits are outlined in the Common Tenancy Agreement available within this website.
