The EC Bar Ranch is located on the Coronado Trail Scenic Byway (Highway 180) in the White Mountains of eastern Arizona. The working cattle ranch includes 3 miles of Nutrioso Creek, a perennial stream restored to proper functioning condition and the only waterbody in the Southwest to meet water quality standards due to mitigation. Livestock management is compatible with aquatic/wildlife habitat  and species in conservation need, including federally listed endangered species ( Little Colorado Spinedace, New Mexico Meadow Jumping Mouse, Southwestern Willow Flycatcher) and Sensitive Tier 1 species in the State Wildlife Action Plan (Bluehead sucker and Speckled dace). See a video describing conservation improvements on the Ranch. 

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 spaces, and agricultural values, all of which provide lasting public benefits on the easement property that includes Nutrioso Creek riparian corridor. The Conservancy will monitor and enforce easement provisions in perpetuity. The adjoining EC Bar Ranch Estates subdivision is divided into lots with CCR provisions that compliment the conservation easement. Lot owners may join the Friends of Nutrioso Creek 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.
