CHLT's Carolyn Hackman Education Fund Scholarship
Calling all Grand County High School seniors in West Grand & Middle Park High Schools! CHLT's Carolyn Hackman Education Fund Scholarship is now accepting applicants for 2023.

This scholarship is for students interested in increasing their knowledge of land conservation and management, and who wish to carry such knowledge and appreciation into their adult years.

Update: Granby Highlands Trails
We're 85% to Our Goal!
Whether you're a resident of Grand County or a visitor who loves to take advantage
of our area’s outdoor recreation, we all have a stake in preserving the open spaces we
care about in Colorado. Help Colorado Headwaters Land Trust conserve 780 acres of open space and two river miles, all in the Town of Granby!

We need your help to raise the last $205,400 to protect the Granby Highlands Trails Conservation Easement. With your gift, you can help CHLT protect spaces like this parcel of land in perpetuity, for visitors, locals, and wildlife to enjoy, forever.
