San Isabel Online Auction


Valley Windmill by Curt Gillespie

We're excited to feature nine outstanding artists, whose talents and hearts capture the essence of our magnificent landscapes here in southern Colorado in this year's online auction. And we've added special experiences we're sure you'll enjoy. Together, they connect us to our rich cultural heritage and beautiful landscape in unique ways.

The fine art auction includes oil paintings, pencil, photography, woodworking, jewelry, pyrography and bronze sculpture. The special experiences include a rare plant tour, music, theater, outdoor recreation, a High Country garden tour, a Dark Skies vacation, as well as grass-fed and grass-finished beef and a ranch operations tour from one of the most innovative, sustainable ranches in our region.

The online auction opens Aug. 7 and finishes Aug. 22 at Beer & Brats, our celebration of you, our supporters. This year's Beer & Brats is at stunning Duckett Creek Ranch, one of our protected properties. Bidding is easy. After the auction opens, visit SanIsabelAuction2021.

San Isabel Land Protection Trust strives to keep this region wild and beautiful, with abundant wildlife, productive agriculture, flowing the auction water and thriving rural communities. Your support makes that possible.

Private lands are important to our health, wealth and heritage. We work with landowners to protect the precious resources that define our region.

  • “We are situated along the Gold Belt National Scenic Byway, where several land trust organizations are involved with protection of lands. San Isabel was extremely well informed. We, and our neighbors, are very pleased with the end result, and the annual monitoring process is unobtrusive. I wish more folks would take the time to learn about the benefits San Isabel offers.”
