Preserving ranchland from Gothic to Gunnison

What would be one of the largest and most significant land conservation projects in the county is in the initial stages of a potential deal. More than 6,000 acres of Trampe Ranch land from Gothic to Gunnison could fall under a conservation easement that would prohibit any more building on the property and keep high-profile open space free of development and in the ranching business.
Rancher Bill Trampe is working with long time open space preservation advocate Susan Lohr and the Trust for Public Land to preserve the iconic property.

The snowpack around the Gunnison Basin has begun to slip below normal levels, thanks to unseasonably warm weather and a dry spell. But according to local water and snow experts, the time to worry hasn’t arrived just yet.
Frank Kugel, general manager for the Upper Gunnison River Water Conservancy District, uses data from five SNOTEL sites scattered around the Upper Gunnison Basin to gauge the state of the area snowpack.
