Aspen Valley Land Trust protects your way of life by nurturing the roots of local agriculture, creating outdoor recreation opportunities, conserving critical wildlife habitat, connecting kids with nature, protecting our rivers and water rights, and preserving the heritage of our communities. Our mission is to permanently preserve open lands for agriculture, wildlife habitat, scenic enjoyment, and recreation in the greater Roaring Fork and Colorado River valleys. Since 1967 we have helped the region’s landowners protect over 40,000 acres of agricultural and open lands, protecting the natural resources that make this area such a special place to live.
Aspen Valley Land Trust is a private, non-profit 501(c)3 organization guided in decision-making by a volunteer Board of Directors and our work is supported by charitable contributions. AVLT is accredited by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission and certified by the State of Colorado.
