Webb Smith Ranch

A conservation easement held by the Colorado Cattlemen’s Agricultural  Land Trust (CCALT) now protects 480 acres of the historic Webb  Smith Ranch and its water resources. This 19th Century ranch is mostly  surrounded by Pike National Forest. The property is located between  Badger Mountain and the Puma Hills near Lake George.  A major partner in the project was Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) with a grant from  the CPW Habitat Partnership Program.  The Land and Water Trust Fund  provided funds for the conservation easement transaction costs.  CCALT  has protected a total of sixteen ranches encompassing more than 13,000  acres in Park County.
