The Arrowhead Ranch possesses significant wildlife habitat and is vital to maintaining integrity of the South Fork of the South Platte River corridor. Conservation of riparian wetlands, mixed montane forest, and lower montane grasslands (910 acres total) complement other conservation efforts in the corridor.
A diverse public/private partnership to conserve the Arrowhead began in 1998. The core partnership included Park County, Colorado Open Lands, and the South Park Wetlands Focus Area Committee (SPWFAC). Funding for conservation easements was provided by Great Outdoors Colorado, NAWCA and the Park County Land & Water Trust Fund.
