Yampa Valley Land Trust has dedicated over 26 years to permanently protecting open lands in Northwest Colorado. YVLT works to conserve scenic vistas, species-rich wildlife habitat, river corridors and water resources, forests, working agricultural landscapes, and more.
The organization also partners with public and private landowners to provide dedicated public access to outdoor recreation.
Whether you live, work, play, or vacation in Northwest Colorado, you benefit from the work of Yampa Valley Land Trust.
YVLT has conserved over 56,130 acres across Routt, Moffat, Jackson, and Rio Blanco Counties to date. These projects protect working agricultural lands, river corridors, open landscapes, life-sustaining ecosystems for wildlife, and more - and YVLT has meaningful new community projects in the works awaiting your support.
The organization also holds conservation easements on portions of Howelsen Hill and Emerald Mountain Park; considered by many to be "the best city-owned park in the world" with dozens of multi-use trails within walking distance of downtown Steamboat Springs. Additionally, YVLT has worked to provide new access points along the Yampa River.
YVLT also owns and manages the Rehder Ranch Nature Preserve, a 250-acre property which was generously gifted to the organization from the estate of Helen Rehder.
