CO-Big Thompson Confluence Bank Updated:04/2023

At the confluence of the Big Thompson and South Platte rivers in Colorado, the Big Thompson Confluence Mitigation Bank was the first mitigation bank approved in the Denver metro area in 20 years. The 72.4-acre Bank provides a compensatory mitigation alternative for stream and wetland impacts in a region currently underserved with mitigation options. The Bank provides habitat for sensitive species such as the Preble’s Meadow Jumping Mouse, Orange spotted Sunfish, Golden Eagle, and Bald Eagle. Colorado Open Lands holds the permanent conservation easement. Additionally, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundations has the long-term endowment to fund site management activities.
