Buckskin Gulch lies between the Alma Cemetery and Pike National Forest west of the Town of Alma. It includes one mile of Buckskin Creek, wetlands, open meadows, aspen and conifer forests, and has been used by the public for camping. The Town of Alma’s water supply system is located on an inholding within the property, so this easement also serves as water supply protection for the Town. Project Partners include Great Outdoors Colorado, the Park County Land & Water Trust Fund, and the Alma Foundation.
R&R Family Farms Conserved!
This 348-acre property is home to a stretch of the beautiful Culebra River and is a testament to the commitment the community shares to keep the land and water together. As a result, key habitat for elk, deer, turkey, bald eagles, and Rio Grande Cutthroat Trout is protected. This property is part of our Acequia Initiative, which is funded by Natural Resource Conservation Service, Great Outdoors Colorado, the LOR Foundation, the Gates Family Foundation, the Trinchera Blanca Foundation, and the Colorado Conservation Partnership.
