The Everson Ranch is part of the Orient Land Trust's Land Conservation Program which protects more than 2,200 acres. The ranch engages in historic ranching operations with the goal of soil and water restoration. Other ranch projects improve riparian areas and eliminate invasive weeds. The reservoir at the ranch is also protecting Rio Grande Chub and Rio Grande Sucker fish species.
Ranch tours will be available throughout the day. Visit the animals, the community garden and walk to the Everson Reservoir to see the meanders project, a joint effort with Colorado Parks and Wildlife to protect endangered species of fish.
