In 1996, Jim Crosswhite acquired the EC Bar Ranch and began restoration of Nutrioso Creek by planting vegetation to restore stream function and habitat, installing stream structures to reduce erosion, and fencing to exclude livestock and wild ungulates that had historically overgrazed riparian and upland pastures.
 
In 2009, 3 miles of Nutrioso Creek on the EC Bar Ranch was delisted as a non-attaining water body by the US Environmental Protection Agency, making it the first instance in Arizona where a water body met water quality standards for aquatic/wildlife habitat due to mitigation. In the same year, Crosswhite created the EC Bar Ranch Conservation Easement to protect riparian wildlife habitat from development. Today, the Arizona Game and Fish Department and US Fish and Wildlife Service have partnered to protect endangered species habitat and stream flows in perpetuity.  

Overlooking Nutrioso Creek and State land on three sides, the  EC Bar Ranch homestead and barn on 6.98 acres is now for sale.  It is split into two parcels which may be purchased together or separately:  Parcel 1 is 5.75 acres with house and barn; and Parcel 2 is 1.02 acres with a 2-story house plus adjoining 0.21 acres with a water well, total 1.23 acres.   Next door, a 5.00-acre parcel and metal building is for sale with great Valley and mountain views.
