Since 1998, conservation practices were implemented on the EC Bar Ranch that led to many successful outcomes that are documented by publicity and monitoring.  Highlights include:

In summary, the 3 miles of Nutrioso Creek on the EC Bar Ranch is a unique property in the United States. After riparian functional conditions were restored, water quality and wildlife habitat improved and then protected in perpetuity with a 94 acre conservation easement. Over 250 acres of adjoining land on the EC Bar Ranch are preserved with deed restrictions.
