As many of you know, the Rocky Mountain Land Library is working with Park County and the City of Aurora to locate a majority of our books and educational programs at South Park’s Buffalo Peaks Ranch, near the headwaters of the South Platte River. This historic ranch presents the Rocky Mountain Land Library with the opportunity to establish a truly unique residential land-study center for the southern Rockies. We are also incredibly fortunate to be working with Park County’s nationally recognized effort to preserve the natural and cultural heritage of a truly unique Western landscape.
Buffalo Peaks Ranch will provide both quiet and inspiration for lifelong learners of all types, including artists, writers, naturalists, scientists, and students at all levels. Everyone will have access not only to the Land Library 25,000+ volumes, but also to South Park’s surrounding landscape of high mountain grasslands and alpine summits.
Stay tuned for updates and exciting developments in the months ahead, but for now we wanted you all to get to know Buffalo Peaks Ranch. We hope you enjoy this fun film clip!
