Strategic Plan Survey
This year marks our  25th year of stewarding and protecting the lands we love in Grand County. A lot has changed in the past 25 years, and will continue to change, from our homes in Grand County, throughout Colorado and the United States, and around the world. We know that this is a tough and troubling time for all of us, for many different reasons, and we want to be able to best represent our community and advocate what our community wants in terms of conservation and resource protection in Grand County -  our home.

We strive to stay on top of current attitudes around conservation in our community. Can you help us keep up with the times and form our new Strategic Plan? Just  ten minutes is all it will take to share your thoughts with us!

Visit to participate in shaping the next five years, and beyond!
Join Colorado Headwaters Land Trust , Headwaters Trails Alliance , and Grand County Water Information Network to record the species you find in Grand County July 1 – 31!

Plus, learn more from expert posts, and win prizes! Join the event on .

Each day we will highlight the "Observation of the Day" and share it on our social media platforms . Each Friday all project participants who made observations that week will automatically be entered into a raffle to win prizes, contributed by the hosting organizations and Two Pines Supply in Granby. The final winner will be the person who contributed the most to the Project over the course of the month. They will be announced on August 01!

Here are some of our posts from June, but find more on our pages!
June 26: "The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit and freedom." - Sharon Ralls Lemon

The Land Trust's mission includes protecting our county's agricultural lands. We work to support current and future generations of ranchers.

June 17: Where the deer and the antelope play . . . Our region is home to one of the West's most iconic creatures, pronghorn. Often called antelope, pronghorn ( Antilocapra americana ) are not actually a member of the antelope family and are found only in North America. The pronghorn is said to be the fastest animal in the Western Hemisphere and can run at speeds of up to 60 miles per hour. Speed is important when you live in open areas with no place to hide from a predator!
June 15 : "Beautify your thoughts. Thoughts are the headwaters of action, life and manifestation." - David Wolfe

These wild woodland wonders are Red Columbine ( Aquilegia canadensis ). They prefer the partial shade of the forest floor near damp riverbeds, and they attract hummingbirds, butterflies and bees with their beautiful red and yellow flowers.

June 10: As we continue to protect land, water and wildlife across the county, we like to share sneak peeks of why we care so much about our local spaces, and how we're working to preserve them. We hope you're catching glimpses of the importance of our lasting connection to nature. Thank you for being part of our community.
June 08: “Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”
– Albert Einstein

What works to bloom now provides fruit in the future. These fragrant Oregon Grape Holly ( Mahonia aquifolium ) flowers transform into edible purple grape-like berries in the fall. A subtle reminder that conserving a healthy natural environment now is essential to meet the needs of future generations.
June 01:   "There is always music playing amongst the trees in the forest, but our heart must be quiet enough to hear it." - Minnie Aumonier

Fairy slippers! How fun to find these Calypso orchids ( Calypso bulbosa ) hiding on the forest floor. They have been classified as threatened or endangered in many locations; so, it's always a treat to see them.
