The mission of the Cherry Hills Land Preserve is to preserve open lands in Cherry Hills Village through leadership, stewardship, education and advocacy.
The Cherry Hills Land Preserve was formed to provide community education and advocacy to preserve large parcels within the community through conservation easements. A number of community residents wanted to see open spaces preserved within an urban environment that is becoming increasingly dense. An independent non-profit that would focus exclusively on the issue of the preservation of open space within the community was desired. A task force, comprised of a large cross-section of citizens, studied the issue, and made key recommendations to the City of Cherry Hills Village in the Blue Ribbon Panel report of 2005. That document helped influence the development of the City's Master Plan. One Village resident recently donated a 17.5 acre parcel known as Quincy Farm to the City of Cherry Hills Village. This property is subject to a conservation easement. Today, the organization focuses on providing education to adults and youth regarding land and environmental conservation, and works with the City to support Quincy Farm.
