CNHP Ecologist Renée Rondeau led a tour last Wednesday of the Hanna Ranch, south of Colorado Springs. The owners of the ranch are working on a conservation easement with the help of the Colorado Conservation Partnership to set aside approximately 460 acres along Fountain Creek.
Renée led potential supporters and journalists on a hike through the ranch’s riparian communities. The tour emphasized the need to conserve large landscapes that connect our high peaks with our prairie systems. By participating in such events, CNHP is assisting with landscape conservation by sharing our conservation knowledge with those that have the resources to pursue on-the-ground conservation.
