City Acquires Biedenharn Parcel

City Acquires Biedenharn Parcel
The City of Steamboat Springs recently completed acquisition and preservation of the 35-acre Biedenhard property, which is located on Emerald Mountain and the Yampa River.

The acquisition will provide protection of a highly visible urban open space area which includes both sides of the Yampa River. This parcel will link thousands of acres of conserved lands and public land on Emerald Mountain and expand the city-owned Howelsen Park Open Space Area. It will also protect critical wildlife habitat in an urban area, provide a scenic vista for the community, connect city parks, and provide public access for trails, fishing, wildlife watching, and environmental education.

The Project was made possible with a $400,000 Open Space grant from Great Outdoors Colorado, $275,000 funding from the Routt County Purchase of Development Rights program, and $625,000 funding from the City of Steamboat Springs. The Yampa Valley Land Trust will hold the conservation easement.
