The Rocky Mountain Conservancy is leading a fundraising effort to acquire the largest remaining privately-held property within Rocky Mountain National Park. The organization will raise $3.6 million to fund the purchase of this commercially-zoned parcel known as Cascade Cottages. The Trust for Public Land is also a partner in this effort to acquire the property for the park.
