Conservation of Migration Corridors

Elk and mule deer use migration corridors to move from higher elevations in the summer to lower elevations in the winter. This movement, called “altitudinal migration,” takes animals to areas where less snowfall makes food more available in winter. It is vital that we protect migration corridors to help insure animals reach critical winter range which provide needed food, water and shelter.

Seven Star property was purchased in 2005 by Pitkin County Open Space and Trails to preserve a portion of the Burnt Mountain elk herd’s migration corridor which is threatened by development.

Although this property in Brush Creek Valley was specifically purchased to protect an elk corridor and winter range values, this area’s habitat supports many other wildlife species such as mule deer, black bear, mountain lion, mountain cottontails, beaver, and Brewer’s sparrow.

Seven Star’s vegetation provides desirable forage for wildlife. The primary browse species utilized are: Gambel’s oak, sagebrush, serviceberry, mountain mahogany and bitter brush.”
