MALT Announces the Conservation of 80 acres in Teller County

Mountain Area Land Trust (MALT) is pleased to announce closing on a Conservation Easement on an 80 acre property just outside of Divide, in Teller County. Conserving this private property connects the surrounding Pike National Forest to maintain a valuable wildlife corridor. The property features a large pond, several springs, and wooded hillsides, making for excellent wildlife habitat. Moose, elk, mountain lions and eagles have all been spotted on the property. There are also remnants of an 1850’s homestead on the property that will be protected by the Conservation Easement.
