What We Do

Working ranches, abundant wildlife, and beautiful wide-open spaces might seem to be timeless elements of the Colorado landscape, but the state continues to witness increasing development pressures, particularly over water resources. While growth has benefits, the costs to the San Isabel region are significant, particularly through the sub-division and drying up of productive irrigated agricultural lands. Agriculture and tourism are two of Colorado’s most important economic sectors, and both depend on a healthy, intact and beautiful landscape. San Isabel Land Protection Trust works with and helps landowners protect these important ranches, farms and forest lands, wildlife habitat, and scenic views.

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

  • “Because San Isabel is pro-agriculture, we were able to work closely with them to craft the contract we felt comfortable with which allows us to capture revenue off of the land while still living on it and maintaining full autonomy of ownership.”
