The Colorado Headwaters Land Trust preserves and stewards open lands within the headwaters of the Colorado River for vistas, wildlife, agriculture and water, in partnership with landowners and for the benefit of all.
Colorado Headwaters Land Trust, is a state certified land trust and nationally accredited land trust. The land trust was established in 1995 as the Grand County Land Conservancy, acquired 501(c)(3) nonprofit status in 1996, changed its name to Middle Park Land Trust in 2001 and to Colorado Headwaters Land Trust in 2012. With a solid foundation of 20+ years of conservation success, the Colorado Headwaters Land Trust continues building strong relationships with landowners and completing land conservation projects that are in keeping with its mission to protect Grand County's wildlife, water, biodiversity, scenery and agricultural land.
"I joined the Board of the Colorado Headwaters Land Trust because the land along the Colorado River and its tributaries and in Grand County is unique and is at risk from the pressures brought on by a growing state population. The Colorado Headwaters Land Trust is the only land conservation organization working solely in Grand County. I hope that my part in the organization will help to meet our goal of protecting the irreplaceable land so that future generations can share in the open vistas, wildlife and running water that characterize our special county."
--Stewart McNab, Colorado Headwaters Land Trust Vice-President
