Crystal Springs Ranch - Kit Carson County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: This working ranch borders Flagler State Wildlife Area to the north. With a flowing natural spring and two ponds, it is a lovely spot for viewing all kinds of wildlife. Rails can be found in some of the wetter areas, and the trees on the property are worth birding at any season. In addition, your opportunities for finding prairie birds are much better on this property than at the State Wildlife Area to the south. This is a destination along I-70 that no birder should miss!
Habitat: Grassland/Prairie, Pond, Lowland Riparian
Directions: To inquire about access to this ranch and to get directions, please contact Linda at the Flagler Conservation District (719-765-4676) a minimum of 48 hours in advance of your potential visit. Please remember that this is a working ranch as well as a private residence, and there may be times when the landowner cannot accommodate visits. While you are on the ranch, remember to stay on roads, leave gates as you find them (whether open or closed), and refrain from taking anything off the ranch or leaving trash behind.
