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.

  • "The Hood Family placed a conservation easement on our ranch because it gave us a chance to preserve the land as undeveloped property while allowing the operation of the ranch to continue to make ranching decisions as we have always done. It also provided funding to establish retirement funds and an investment portfolio, providing long-term income."

    – Keith Hood, fifth-generation rancher
