The natural area is being managed for local agriculture and wildlife habitat. So far, eighteen species of birds, mammals, and reptiles have been recorded at Soaring Vista. There's an 8-acre cattail marsh and salt meadow in the northwest corner that's home to many of these animals.

The site was given its name because of the wide-open views of the Colorado Front Range, and also because raptors are commonly spotted flying overhead.

The natural area is open daily from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. The approximate address 4200 East County Road 30, Loveland, CO.

Today these parks are located throughout the country in 25 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The land encompassing them was either purchased or donated, though much of it had been inhabited by native people for thousands of years before the founding of the United States. These areas are protected and revered as educational resources about the natural world, and as spaces for exploration.
