The largest conservation easement in the Paradise Valley was recently created when Arthur Blank signed a deal with the Gallatin Valley Land Trust for his 8,800 acre Paradise Valley Ranch.

Blank is the chairman and owner of AMB West and also owns the Atlanta Falcons pro football team. AMB West is a holding company comprised of Blank’s for-profit and nonprofit guest ranches in Paradise Valley. The ranches include Mountain Sky Guest Ranch, West Creek Ranch, Paradise Valley Ranch and The Ranch at Dome Mountain. 

The conservation easement permanently limits residential and commercial development on the Paradise Valley Ranch while allowing agriculture and outdoor recreation to continue.

“Paradise Valley Ranch is not only a stunning property in the heart of Paradise Valley, it also provides critical wildlife habitat and is rich in agricultural opportunities,” Blank said in a statement.
