EAGLE COUNTY, Colorado – On Saturday, the Eagle Valley Land Trust held a Family Fun Day to celebrate the permanent conservation of the Miller Ranch Community Open Space. Dozens of local kids participated in a project to build bird houses for the mountain bluebirds who call the area home. The festivities also included a ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony to commemorate the placement of a conservation easement on the land.

Earlier this year, the Land Trust announced the successful completion of a community conservation project to protect forever the Miller Ranch Open Space. The Miller Ranch Community Open Space consists of 32.5 acres of public trail systems and over one mile of Eagle River access for the people of our community. This land is located immediately to the southeast of the Miller Ranch neighborhood, bordered on the west by the “blue light bridge” and on the south by the Eagle River. It is bordered on the north by the railroad tracks and on the east by the 14th tee box at Arrowhead.

The Eagle Valley Land Trust will hold additional “Family Fun Day” events throughout the summer on several publicly accessible parcels of land in the Edwards area. The next family friendly event on the land is planned for June 30 at 10 a.m. at the Eagle River Preserve in Edwards.
