Conservation Land For Sale Area Info News & Media Contact
The EC Bar Ranch is located on the Coronado Trail Scenic Byway in the White Mountains of eastern Arizona, nationally recognized through newspaper and magazine publicity  for  conservation projects. The EC Bar Ranch is a working cattle ranch that includes 3 miles of Nutrioso Creek, a perennial stream that has been restored in recent years to one of the highest standards for water quality and aquatic/wildlife habitat in Arizona. The controlled timing, duration, and frequency of livestock grazing through riparian pastures have helped in the restoration process.

In 2009, the EC Bar Ranch Conservation Easement was donated to the New Mexico Land Conservancy to ensure the preservation of natural habitat, scenic open space, and agricultural values, all of which provide lasting public benefits on the 94 acre easement property that includes 3 miles of Nutrioso Creek riparian corridor. The Conservancy will monitor and enforce easement provisions. The adjoining 206 acre EC Bar Ranch Estates subdivision is divided into 63 lots with CCR provisions that compliment the easement. Lot owners may have the opportunity to volunteer their services to help maintain the easement property, which connects with the Apache Sitgreaves National Forest downstream.

It is envisioned that through a collaborative partnership between those associated with an ongoing working ranch, a conservation easement, and subdivision, the protection and preservation of open spaces, wildlife habitat, and a rural lifestyle will be assured for many generations to come.
