The Ranch is a 16,000+ acre conservation property in south central Colorado nestled in between National Forest and wilderness land to the east and west and bordered by two similar size and related family ranches to the North and South. The majority of the ranch is protected by conservation easements and is managed to enhance wildlife habitat.

Manager and ranch staff activities include all aspects of land stewardship: facility management, equipment maintenance and repair, road and trail maintenance, forestry, water rights/ditch management, care and conditioning of ranch horses, packing up to high country, providing security for the property, overseeing subcontractors including an elk hunting outfitting business, and, most importantly, ensuring the land and facilities are maintained to standard for family use as well as coordinating periodic family visits.

The Assistant Manager/Trainee of Catspaw Ranch will live on or near the ranch and assist the Manager with all aspects of management. He/she will report directly to the current Ranch Manager. We intend that he/she will assume the role of Ranch Manager over the next few years. As such a qualified candidate would have several years of experience working on a ranch or wilderness property.

He/ she will:

Possess experience with general forestry/fire management knowledge and skills, or a bachelors degree in forestry or natural resources fields.
Have conservation-minded values and be a passionate outdoors person
Be focused on service to the family when they are in residence and responsive to family requests throughout the year
