CONSERVATION IN ACTION: After years of negotiation the City of Durango purchased a 177 acre tract of land on the side of Animas Mountain known as Jacob's Cliffs from Jake Dalla. Now known as Dalla Mountain Park, the land has many unique features including spectacular cliffs and fields of enormous boulders, small open meadows and impressive views of the La Platas and Perins Peak. The City will manage the property as a public park and has granted a conservation easement to ensure that it will always remain open even if ownership should change in the future.
