  • Mission:
  • The mission of Colorado Open Lands is to preserve the significant open lands and diminishing natural heritage of Colorado through private and public partnerships, innovative land conservation techniques, and strategic leadership.

  • History:
  • Since 1981, we have been acting directly to address the loss of agricultural and scenic lands in Colorado to commercial, industrial, or real estate development. Throughout the state, at both regional and local scales, Colorado Open Lands implements its land conservation efforts through innovative leadership and stewardship and in partnership with local, state, and federal organizations.

    Thanks to these partnerships and the remarkable landowners with whom we work, we have permanently protected more than 200,000 acres of land through 265 projects. In all our programs, Colorado Open Lands' problem-solving, non-adversarial approach to land preservation has been instrumental to our success in protecting Colorado's diverse heritage.
