Kent KellerEVLT and the community of Estes Park have lost a longtime friend, former EVLT Director Kent Keller, who passed away in March.

As a Board member from 2007 to 2011, Kent was instrumental in ensuring that over 2,500 acres of scenic lands in the Estes Valley remain forever preserved for future generations to enjoy.

While on the Board and for several years after, Kent served as Chair of the Educational Events Committee, which organizes our annual Summer Educational Breakfast Series. Through his work, many hundreds of people learned about wildlife, ecology, and other conservation issues while socializing and enjoying good food. Kent had an amazing talent for recruiting great committee members to help with the events.

Kent’s wife, Janet, and family kindly named EVLT as a recipient for contributions in Kent’s memory, further extending his legacy of preserving the beauty of the Estes Valley that he so loved. If you would like to donate in Kent’s memory, you can do so on this website or by mail to PO Box 663, Estes Park CO, 80517.
