A few weeks back, the entire Mirr Ranch Group team headed out for a morning of upland bird hunting at The Bluffs, a wingshooting preserve in Colorado’s eastern plains. Since we are all usually spread out visiting ranches all over the Rockies, it was great to get everyone together for a day of outdoor fun. You can see more photos over on the Mirr Ranch Group blog.
As usual, the Colorado Coalition of Land Trust’s annual conference - Conservation Excellence - was a huge success. Every year, the event is a great opportunity for Colorado’s conservation leaders to convene in a central location and discuss the successes and failures of the previous year and plan for the opportunities and challenges of the year to come.
I had the pleasure of speaking at one of this year’s sessions with friends from the Colorado Cattlemen’s Agricultural Land Trust, and Mirr Ranch Group was a sponsor of the event. For more information, head over to the company blog:
Check out my newest blog entry on the Mirr Ranch Group site, where I discuss the 2014 Farm Bill and how it will help landowners conserve over a million more acres of working, productive farms and ranches.
If you’re in Boulder on Thursday (3/13) evening, be sure to stop by the Nature Conservancy’s office for an interesting panel discussion about last September’s historic flooding. The event is being presented by the Nature Conservancy’s young professional’s group, The 13ers - Emerging Leaders in Conservation. I serve on a committee that helped to plan this event, so I’m very excited with how it has come together.
We’ll be hearing from three different conservation and water professionals about not only what happened when 19 inches of rain fell in 48 hours, but also about what opportunities for conservation have been created as a result of the flooding. It’s definitely going to be an interesting and informative event.

Head over the the Mirr Ranch Group blog to read my most recent post that covers the importance of a ranch’s agricultural tax status and the steps that must be followed to maintain that beneficial tax classification:
Check out the new article on the Mirr Ranch Group blog about last week’s sale of the Jensen Ranch:
The Jensen Ranch is an extremely unique and private property, with a huge variety of terrain, wildlife, and rare plants, all on only 174 acres. It’s completely surrounded by Roosevelt National Forest, but only a few miles from the small village of Red Feather Lakes. I’m sure the new owners will enjoy the property for years to come!
Be sure to head over to the Mirr Ranch Group site for more information on my newest listing - Promontory Ranch. The 255-acre property adjoins Crested Butte Mountain Resort on one side and Gunnison National Forest on the other, and the parcel accounts for approximately 1/5 of the private land in the town of Mt. Crested Butte. The ranch presents a unique opportunity for a wide range of buyers - development-focused, conservation-minded, or simple buy-and-hold investors.
