Conservation Values Protected
- Scenic Open Space: This scenic property is located directly south of Rocky Mountain National Park, one of the country’s first and most popular national parks. People living in or visiting the Town of Grand Lake benefit from the easement on this visible property with its sagebrush hillsides, aspen groves, and pine forest. From the lodge on the property, visitors can enjoy the forest and open space which forms the foreground for the panoramas of Grand Lake, Mount Craig, Shadow Mountain Lake, and the more distant peaks and valleys.
- Wildlife Habitat: Deer and elk use this property for winter range and migration routes. There are seasonal wetlands and riparian areas on the property that act as natural water purifiers, hold soils, and, with their mix of vegetative and microbial species, break down natural wastes and pollutants.
