Snapshots: Fourth of July float winner, Land conserved by Mesa Land Trust and animals in need of forever homes

Mesa Land Trust is happy to announce that it recently completed a conservation easement on the West Creek Ranch in Unaweep Canyon. This 780-acre working ranch provides stunning views of the Unaweep Tabeguache-Scenic Byway, incredible wildlife habitat (especially for big game species like deer and elk), and most importantly it is part of the ranching heritage of Mesa County. This property will continue to be worked by the longtime, multi-generational ranching family who live on the property. Beeman Casto was born on the property and still ranches it with his wife Jessie.
