These Conservation Easements will allow the property to remain in a substantially undisturbed, natural state, and therefore has significant ecological, open space, agricultural, and especially important wildlife habitat value for the Gunnison sage grouse, native Colorado River cutthroat trout, as well as elk, mule deer, bear and other wildlife, important livestock grazing values, and important hunting and other outdoor recreational values, all of which are of great importance to our local communities here on the Western Slope of Colorado.
