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. 


Our mission is to conserve land throughout the Estes Valley and surrounding areas for current and future generations.

Be a Part of Forever









With more than 4.5 million visitors coming to Estes Park each year, our open lands, wildlife and quality of life are at risk. The Perpetuity Fund is an endowment that would allow the land trust to operate in perpetuity, to continue to support local landowners and conserve open spaces throughout the valley forever. Our ultimate goal is to raise $5 million for the endowment, which would provide sufficient funds to support the land trust year after year. Be a part of forever and donate today.
