The Sunday Today Show just aired NBC’s second report of this past week on the progress being made at Buffalo Peaks Ranch!

This morning’s piece perfectly described the Land Library’s plans to create a book-lined residential learning center on the banks of the Middle Fork of the South Platte River. Reporter Harry Smith (a true lover of Colorado’s wide open spaces) also sensitively captured the stark beauty of this historic high mountain ranch. It was a real pleasure having Harry and his NBC crew at Buffalo Peaks Ranch!

We hope you enjoy the video clip above. There’s more news to come from this exciting summer, but for now we’ll close with a few photos as the last few roof shingles were nailed into place. Thanks to HistoriCorps and all its remarkable volunteers for your hard work and dedication, and many thanks to our major funding partner for this summer’s roofing project, the South Park National Heritage Area!
