Leopold Conservation Award Program - Colorado 2004

Colorado 2004 Rusk Hereford Ranch Westcliffe, CO Leopold Conservation Award Recipient

Based on the outstanding management of key ranches in the northern half of the Wet Mountain Valley, Randy and Claricy’s children will represent the family’s 5th generation working and caring for the lands between the scenic Sangre de CristoMountains and the Wet Mountains. The Rusk’s have led the way in Custer County with progressive ranch management and some of the first conservation easements to slow the expansion of subdivision into the Valley’s working lands. In addition to the Rusk Hereford Ranch, the Rusks lease and manage the Kennicott, Beckwith and BJP Ranches. Randy and Claricy serve on many boards, associations, and foundations, demonstrating a true commitment to leadership and civic responsibility within their community and throughout the industry.
