Grant proposal to the Climax Area Community Investment Fund

Land Trust Supporters,

There is some good news on our grant proposal to the Climax Area Community Investment Fund, part of the Climax Molybdenum Company in Lake County. We submitted a proposal back in December to help cover a small percentage of the costs associated with our 200-acre conservation easement on Phase II of Headwaters Ranch and to help construct a public parking area for fishing access to the Arkansas River.

We were invited by the Community Investment Fund for an interview on April 8th! This is not a guarantee of funding but it gets us one step closer. Headwaters Ranch is an incredible mix of wetlands and forest surrounding over two miles of the East Fork of the Arkansas River. The Land Trust is hopeful we can protect all three phases of this property and provide exciting fishing opportunities. We should know more in the next month.
