Description

The land protection is the core of Montezuma Land Conservancy. Montezuma Land Conservancy works with landowners, non-governmental organizations, and public entities to protect important habitat, agricultural land, and scenic open space. Through our land protection program, MLC has protected more than 44,500 acres in southwest Colorado.

Montezuma Land Conservancy's Land Protection Program is driven by a comprehensive strategic conservation plan that laid out 6 program areas to focus conservation efforts on. These program areas span from Dove Creek to Lone Cone south to Mancos and west to McElmo Canyon - and everything in between.
