Our Projects

Yampa Valley Land Trust has permanently protected over 56,130 acres in 76 conservation transactions throughout Northwest Colorado: comprising scenic landscapes, productive ranchland, open space, forests, river corridors, recreation areas, critical wildlife habitat, and more. 

YVLT has also collaborated with other community leaders to secure an additional 5,500 acres of land providing public access for hiking, mountain biking, nordic skiing, snowshoeing, fishing, boating, and watching wildlife (including Emerald Mountain Park and put-ins along the Yampa River)!

Through a generous bequest from Helen Rehder, YVLT owns and operates the 250-acre Rehder Ranch Nature Preserve located in Pleasant Valley near Steamboat Springs.
