The Great Outdoors Colorado board has awarded a pair of grants for over $1,626,300 million dollars for two projects in Moffat County. The Craig Press reports that the big one is for the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. They received the bulk of the grant money to conserve 12,684 acres of Buffalo Horn Ranch. That’s northwest of Meeker in both Moffat and Rio Blanco Counties. The second grant is for $50,000 in transaction costs given to Colorado Open Lands. It’s to conserve nearly 5,000 acres of Battle Mountain Ranch in northeast Moffat County. The projects will help give outdoor recreationists places to play and enjoy scenic views, protect wildlife habitat, safeguard the state’s water supply and watersheds, and sustain local agriculture.
