VIDEO: Louis Bacon Signs Blanca Conservation Easement to US Fish and Wildlife Service

Louis Bacon, noted conservationist and principal owner of Blanca Ranch, made an historic announcement in partnership with Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar and the Service to place 90,000 acres of land in Colorado’s San Luis Valley into a perpetual conservation easement.

The Blanca Ranch easement will build upon Mr. Bacon’s Trinchera Ranch easement finalized earlier this year and will form a key part of the newly-established Sangre de Cristo Conservation Area (SCCA). Together, the 170,000 acre area creates one of the longest protected wildlife corridors in the world and stands as the largest donated conservation easement held by the Service.
