Sacramento Preserve Conservation Easement In Park County
Mountain Area Land Trust (MALT), Keep It Colorado and Park County Land and Water Trust Fund are pleased to announce the Sacramento Preserve Conservation Easement of 56.5-acres in Park County outside the town of Fairplay.
In the early 1900s, two families purchased this land together and have enjoyed recreating on it. This special place features a rich riparian and wetlands habitat, beaver ponds, wildlife and small cabin. The owners, Tri-Walk LLC, Lynn Grams and Christine Smith, wish to preserve their families legacy with the Conservation Easement.
This historic property is adjacent to MALT-owned land, Sacramento Creek Ranch, and is part of a broader strategic effort to protect visible open space and wildlife habitat throughout Park County in highly biologically diverse areas. Surrounding acreage connects to over 100,000 acres of Pike National Forest and stretches from the summits of the Mosquito Range to the Middle Fork of the South Platte River.
This Conservation Easement marks the success of 1½ years where MALT, the owners and our partners are working together to conserve this precious resource.
“This project is the culmination of MALT’s efforts to work with landowners in the Sacramento Creek area to protect precious wildlife habitats, and land and water resources. We are thrilled the landowners are dedicated to conserving this beautiful space and limiting future development on this parcel. We look forward to partnering with other owners in the area,” says MALT Executive Director Jeanne Beaudry.
