News: Hammer Flat sold to IF&G

The Hammer Flat wildlife refuge just east of Boise has been sold by the City of Boise to the Idaho Fish & Game. The 705 acres that act as a wintering ground for big game will be managed as a preserve by the IF&G. The deal is a win-win move for conservation efforts, as the sales price of $4.23 million will go into Boise's levy to protect the foothills. Boise originally purchased the property from a defunct developer for $4.1 million.
