This 145-acre property is highly visible from Interstate 70 west of Golden and is bordered by Genesee Mountain Park. A large portion of the property is also visible from the beloved and highly-trafficked Beaver Brook Trail. The project was brought to Colorado Open Lands through our 2020 merger with Clear Creek Land Conservancy and joins a large cluster of land protected by that group, now permanently under the stewardship of COL. It contains a mix of forestlands, open meadows, and wetlands. It provides food, shelter, breeding ground, and migration corridors for several species, including black bear, elk, mountain lion, mule deer, and numerous species of birds.
