Neukirch Ranch

Over several years Dave and Carol Neukirch incrementally  conserved 2,400 acres of their fourth-generation family ranch south of  Fairplay.  Their efforts have benefitted nesting birds, protected the  groundwater hydrology of High Creek Fen Preserve, and preserved stunning views of the Mosquito Range from US Highway 285.

Great Outdoors Colorado, Colorado Open Lands and the Park County Land and Water Trust Fund aided the Neukirchs by providing limited funding  for their extensive ranch conservation efforts.
