In 2013, we protected 9,688 acres! One example of the beauty and natural resources that have been protected for all of us is the Lake San Cristobal Inlet Preservation & Fishing Access Project
This dynamic, complex conservation project has permanently preserved 37 acres of grasslands, mixed conifer, and cottonwood forest, and 79 acres of delta wetland created by the Lake Fork of the Gunnison River as it enters Lake San Cristobal. It also now provides public access to 0.65 miles of the Lake Fork of the Gunnison River for fly fishing! The property is also a visual centerpiece for the general public recreating at Lake San Cristobal, which is a popular destination for fishing, camping, and boating.
