Why I Give

We'd like to introduce you to Michael Banz and Kathy Blaha, long-time friends and members of San Isabel Land Protection Trust and founding members of our Evergreen Giving Club. We recently asked them why they give to San Isabel. Below are there answers.

Recently I attended the Conservation Excellence Conference hosted by the Colorado Coalition of Land Trusts at the University of Denver. There I participated on a panel discussing a suite of innovative water management solutions to secure water for people and nature.

Meet Kate!

San Isabel Land Protection Trust welcomes Kate Spinelli to the team as the new Stewardship Specialist, bringing the land trust to three, full-time staff members.


At the end of 2015, San Isabel Land Protection Trust helped two families realize their dreams of protecting their land. Both properties lie on the forested eastern flank of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, adjacent to the San Isabel Forest in Custer County. Now, critical wildlife habitat and forest land will be protected, forever.

Will YOU help us?

Help San Isabel attract a buyer for the Claret Canyon Ranch, a beautiful 335-acre protected property in southern Fremont County. The sellers of this gorgeous ranch have offered San Isabel a generous finder’s fee if we find a buyer. Will YOU help us?

  • “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.”
