History of Coldharbour Ranch
Legend has it, with support from archaeological experts, Ute Indians utilized this land for flaking and vision quests. Centuries later, the remote property was utilized as a speakeasy during the prohibition.
The majority of the property is now held in a wetlands conservation easement through the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. As part of this easement, the environmentally crucial riparian zones and wetlands found along Tomichi Creek must be properly managed and remain healthy, or become healthier. Already, this has been a success. Two decades ago, the Clark's let the land fallow by ceasing ranching operations. The changes that have occurred since then are palpable. Today the property contains one of the healthiest riparian zones along the Tomichi Creek in the area.
The remaining land is our living canvas for ecological and social innovation--
the question is:
how far can we take it?
