Conserving Land in Northwest Colorado
The Yampa Valley and Northwest Colorado are changing and growing in many ways. Some of the unique features loved by residents and visitors alike, particularly the wide-open spaces and traditional agricultural lands, are increasingly vulnerable in these changing times. Multiple community surveys conducted over the past two decades continue to indicate that open landscapes and the protection of wildlife habitat – along with opportunities for public recreation – are of utmost importance to the quality of life, sense of place and local economy in the Yampa Valley. It is critical to take action now to maintain what is left of these irreplaceable treasures – however – we need your help!
Yampa Valley Land Trust is Northwest Colorado’s non-profit land conservation organization. YVLT is dedicated to the conservation of natural, scenic, agricultural, historic and other public and private open land resources in Northwest Colorado, including but not limited to Routt, Moffat, Jackson and Rio Blanco Counties – with a focus on the Upper Yampa River Basin in Routt County and Upper White River Basin in Rio Blanco County – for the benefit of this and future generations.
