The importance of preserving habitat at Observer Ranch

Observer Ranch consists primarily of grasslands and prairie native to Colorado. Although it may seem like there is minimal wildlife upon first inspection, these prairies are brimming with life. Take a look at all the animals, plants, insects, and more that rely on this beautiful habitat we have been entrusted with. Our hope is to one day have Observer hiking trails, forging expeditions, and more to help our community better understand how to take care of this ecosystem.
