Over the past 25 years, Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) has made substantial investments in conserving working lands and water rights in Colorado. This ensures that all Coloradans have access to healthy, locally grown food, clean drinking water, scenic views, and wildlife. These conservation efforts allow access to the outstanding outdoor recreation experiences. Through this project, several organizations and municipal partners secured a unique opportunity to conserve the farm and its water rights to the Little Thompson River. This was accomplished while preserving its ability to function as a working farm.
