Over 40,000 acres protected. Help us do more.

Private lands are important to our health, wealth and heritage. We help Colorado land conservation by working with landowners to protect and preserve the precious resources that define our region.

  • "My family put 720 acres under conservation easement in 2009. We did it to protect the integrity of the property and to help secure the water rights to the irrigated hay land in perpetuity. In this age of agricultural and economic uncertainty, conservation easements are the thing to do."
