  • Scenic Open Space: This scenic property can be viewed from County Road 519 and is enhanced by an adjacent 107-acre conservation easement, also held by Colorado Headwaters Land Trust.
  • Wildlife Habitat: This conservation easement protects the migration corridors that wildlife use to move between the forested areas of higher elevations to the south and east and the sagebrush, grasslands, and streams found at lower elevations to the north. Skunk Creek flows through the property, providing riparian habitat for wildlife and for several species of grasses and forbs. According to the easement donor, the endangered boreal toad used to inhabit two ponds in the wetlands on the property.
