ESTES VALLEY LAND TRUST - PRESERVING LAND FOREVER

Estes Valley Open Space Plan

For more than 30 years, the Estes Valley Land Trust has worked with private landowners and our partners to preserve nearly 10,000 acres of land. Now, for the first time, we have developed the Estes Valley Open Space Plana strategic land conservation plan with a goal to preserve another 5,000 acres in the next 10 years.

Thank you to everyone that came to events, filled out surveys, and submitted feedback to make this plan happen. This plan was created by our community, for our community, to preserve the areas that we value the most. Watch a short video about the final plan here, or click here to read the full plan. 

The Thumb Open Space

The Estes Valley Land Trust has been working with our partners to strengthen and enhance a few of our existing conservation easements. We are working with the Town of Estes Park, the Access Fund, Rocky Mountain Conservancy, and GOCO to better protect the conservation values of open space, wildlife habitat, scenic resources, and outdoor recreation access on the Thumb Open Space.
