More than 42,000 acres protected. Help us do more.

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

  • “Open space does not keep our cities apart; it holds our country together.”

    – Claricy Rusk, fourth-generation rancher

We have protected more than 42,000 acres through 134 conservation easements.

Conservation easements guarantee long-term protection – through generations of landowners.
