Happy autumn! We are thrilled to be celebrating our 25th year this year despite the fires, drought, and pandemic – because as a local conservation organization, we know that environmental conservation is key to our community’s strength. Every acre of conserved land is another acre that keeps Grand County so grand, and keeps people coming to our valleys and mountains to support our community.
Over the last 25 years, Colorado Headwaters Land Trust has conserved 8,910 acres of land throughout Grand County. This includes small lakefront properties in Grand Lake, medium-sized homesteads near Fraser and Winter Park, and ranches of all sizes throughout the county, from Berthoud to Rabbit Ears.
We can only do this with your generosity.
This year so far has seen some growth in the CHLT family, including Frank DeLay as a new Board member and Holly Glick as our new Development Director. They were both welcomed with open arms and we look forward to seeing the organization continue to grow and improve with their help.
However, we also said goodbye to Diane LeDuc, our longtime bookkeeper and office manager. She retired over the summer and moved to a state with a warmer climate! We will miss her at the office greatly but are endlessly thankful for the many years she worked with us.
By now you have noticed that we did not have our Annual Event in July! We decided, though, that instead of simply moving our July event online, we would create a new event, one that will hopefully match our previous events, and possibly grow to become our annual celebration of all things conservation in Grand County.
Which is why we are proud to announce:
