West Bijou Master Plan
The Plains Conservation Center acquired approximately 10,000 acres surrounding the West Bijou Creek in the prairie just east of Denver. The site is a rich and complex location with active oil wells, bison ranching, historic homesteads, ongoing scientific research and wildlife management. Its one of the largest prairie holdings within easy access to the urban metro area. It has never been developed for recreation, conservation or visitor usage. The site is home to significant wildlife, Pleistocene, paleontological and western history, including the Goodnight-Loving cattle drive trail.
Services included comprehensive master plan, land use, mapping, historic research, trail and feature design and alignments, conservation easement baseline report, interpretive exhibit center design, project budgeting and implementation planning, constituency and partner input coordination.
