A huge ranch near Trinidad could become Colorado’s next state park.
The Nature Conservancy and the Trust for Public Land purchased the 30-square-mile Crazy French Ranch this year. While it may or may not become a state park, plans are underway to open the land to the public. The partnership “will mix recreation and conservation in what could become a model for park development, creating a roadmap for nonprofits and states seeking to grow outdoor recreation economies while preserving natural landscapes.” Read the story in the Colorado Sun.
