Sears Range

This site offers over 480 acres of ungrazed shortgrass prairie. It is a new ranch being managed for conservation purposes, and currently the only domestic inhabitants are three friendly, rescued llamas. This is a good location for grassland specialities, one of the closest places to Colorado Springs where you might find Grasshopper Sparrow, Cassin’s Sparrow, and many other birds.
