LAND CONSERVATION: We had another successful stewardship season this year. All of CCLC’s properties were visited by volunteers and staff. Healthy vegetation, signs of wildlife, and moderate recreational use were observed and recorded.
NEW PROJECTS: CCLC is excited to be working on several projects with non-profits and private landowners to preserve their open space for the future. Though we can’t share details yet, preserving these lands will be a great win for conservation!
COLORADO DIVISION of CONSERVATION: The State has set up a new Division of Conservation (as of May 2018) to manage and regulate the Conservation Easement Program. The new Division will certify land trust, evaluate tax credit applications, and issue tax credits for qualifying conservation easements. CCLC expects that the new Division will further improve the already strong foundation of conservation in the State.
