A Natural Resource Inventory of the Uncompahgre River Basin, Montrose and Ouray Counties A lengthy, somewhat technical report, by the Colorado Natural Heritage Program that provides an overview of the various native plant/animal communities within the Uncompahgre River Basin in Montrose and Ouray Counties. The MMAA property and it's surroundings are included within the report area. You will find a bit of information on the endangered clay-loving wild buckwheat that is found on our property. 

If you really want to find out about the biological resources, and to some extent the non-living portions of the native ecosystems, this is a good start. 
Fish and Wildlife Service Information for the Clay Loving Wild Buckwheat All the information you could want regarding the endangered clay-loving wild buckwheat plants that are present on MMAA property and the adjacent BLM lands. This plant's presence on our property enabled the prior owner to establish a conservation easement on the property, and ultimately allowed MMAA to purchase the property for a literal song.
