Aspen Valley Land Trust

A nonprofit organization

Protecting the places you love in the Roaring Fork and Colorado River valleys for wildlife, agriculture, and community, forever.

These valleys are changing faster than ever and you can help protect all that you love about these places. Your help protecting land for wildlife and the community will support this region's climate resilience, way of life, and future.


Aspen Valley Land Trust protects the open land and special places of the Roaring Fork and middle Colorado River valleys for wildlife, agriculture, and community, forever.

Background Statement

Together, landowners, community partners, and AVLT have protected over 45,000 acres of the places you love. Within these conserved lands are over 100 miles of riverfront and over 30 miles of public hiking and biking trails. Almost anywhere you go in the Roaring Fork or Colorado River valleys, you will come across open landscapes that will remain that way, forever.

The loss of open and scenic lands to unplanned development threatens our economy and quality of life. The conservation of open land helps ensure clean water, habitat and migration corridors for wildlife, a future for local working farms and ranches, and equitable access to outdoor education and recreation.

Support AVLT to create a legacy of conservation for the next generation, both wild and human.
