Near the end of 2022, the National Park Service purchased 105 acres of land neighboring the City of Rocks National Reserve.

The area is home to much natural beauty, including granite outcrops of Train Rock, portions of Graham Creek, aspen groves and moose habitat. Tara McClure-Cannon, Acting Superintendent for City of Rocks National Reserve joined Idaho Matters to talk more about this purchase.
