MLC host a wide range educational opportunities and experiences that strive to reconnect people to land. We offer workshops, host school groups, varied outdoor prgramming and offer a classroom space for the wider community to use as well.
The programs have served around 600 youth a year and 150 adults.
Our Stewardship Program ensures that all lands conserved by Montezuma Land Conservancy are monitored annually.
When violations are minimal, new landowners are educated to the terms of their conservation easements, and every easement is monitored annually.
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.
In FY 2013-2014 MLC completed 10 conservation easements permanently protecting 3,788 acres of land. In 2017 the total acreage protected was over 44,500 acres of farm and ranch land, wildlife habitat and scenic open space in our community
