Spirit Mt Habitat at Eden Valley Guest RanchOne habitat type is the timber mix of Ponderosa Pine, Douglas Fir and Western Larch with native shrubs, wildflowers and grasses.  The brush piles from our 2005 project have been a boost for our squirrel and rabbit homes.  There are a few rock walls of granite providing micro-environments within the timbered areas. The trail system is under-utilized by humans and creates wildlife thoroughfares.  Deer, coyote, owls, bobcats, squirrels, rabbits, lizards, skunk, porcupine, grouse, wild turkey, badger, and more make this area home.

The second type of habitat is the draws and waterways for snow melt which are host to Quaking Aspen, Wild Black Birch, Alder and Cottonwood thick with shrubs, grasses, nettles, and other native plants.

Third, Eden Valley has the woods pasture fields and grass strips that the predator birds and coyotes patrol.

Additional unique habit is where we have rocky ground and native bunch grass with a few sage brush surrounded by all of the above.

The last variety of habitat is actually our fields of grain and alfalfa that the wildlife utilize.  In some fields there are rock piles and other areas of non-used land that the wildlife enjoy.  Wildlife have a buffer with the crop around them.
