Twin Bridges is comprised of 11 separate conservation easements in an area north of Trail Ridge Road in Custer County.  Donation of the 1,320 total acres spanned from 1997-1999, and showed what kind of large conservation successes are possible when a group of like-minded neighbors works towards a common goal. Various habitats are found on the large property, including riparian wetlands, open slopes, steep hillsides, streams, woodlands, and pastures. The easement protects the sensitive riparian habitat and adjacent land that is important to many fish and wildlife species, including the endangered peregrine falcon.
