Yampatika’s Environmental Learning Center at Legacy Ranch

0

Legacy Ranch is owned by the City of Steamboat Springs and is maintained as a working ranch and as an environmental learning center. The ranch was originally homesteaded by a woman in 1899. The Yampa River runs through the ranch. There are plans to develop trails in the near future which would open up some great birding opportunities in riparian habitat dominated by willows.
