Long Live Long Lake!
Wildlife habitat. Recreational access. Sustainable ranching. These are many of the aspects that we all treasure in this valley and that shape the unique character and spirit of the Gunnison Valley. Together, we have an opportunity to help each of these conservation values flourish here in Crested Butte by protecting 120 acres of Long Lake. Protecting Long Lake is a prime example of how of we can balance these conservation values of land and water protection, ranching heritage, and recreational use.
