Palmer Land Conservancy

A nonprofit organization

$44,110 raised by 112 donors

Palmer Land Conservancy exists to ensure that everything we love about the Colorado — its natural beauty, locally grown food, outdoor recreation — can be enjoyed by everyone now, and for future generations.

But loving a place is just the beginning; you must have the courage to protect it.


"Having to fight to make something happen is a hint that it is important. If no one objects, it probably isn't important."

Background Statement

Since 1977, Palmer Land Conservancy has worked with individuals, private and public partners, and various communities to protect land forever including 20 of your favorite public parks and open spaces, important working farms and ranches, and iconic scenic views.

Our Lasting Commitment to the Land

Our promise is forever. We commit to continuing our work in perpetuity. Our extensive service area spans 19 counties across southern Colorado and connects us to more than 100 committed landowners with nearly 138,000 acres under permanent conservation. Every property, whether publicly or privately owned, is visited annually by our dedicated stewardship staff to ensure its permanent conservation.

The day we conserve a property is only the first step in a long-term relationship with the landowner and the land. Palmer's dedication and commitment to the land, our landowner partners, and our community is truly forever.
