Mountain Area Land Trust (MALT) is pleased to announce the closing of a Conservation Easement on 112 acres near Pennsylvania Mountain in Park County, one of MALT's priority areas. The Middle Fork of the South Platte River is a dominant feature of the property, which in addition to providing habitat for large wildlife, serves as habitat for species such as brown trout and beaver. The property is in close proximity to the Pike National Forest and contributes to the open space character of Park County and to the scenic nature of the local rural landscape. The Conservation Easement fulfills the landowner's desire to ensure that the property's wildlife habitat, water resources and scenic vistas will be conserved forever.
