Trail Closures Protect Winter Wildlife Habitat
by Jessica Foulis, EVLT Stewardship Manager

Many of you may have noticed the winter trail closures throughout Eagle County -- these closures are not only vital to protecting wildlife during stressful times of year but also to protect YOU from potential wildlife conflicts.

EVLT Welcomes New Board Member Andrew Larson!

EVLT extends a very warm welcome to our newest board member, Andy Larson.  Andy's financial leadership background is a vital part of EVLT's strategic plan over the next several years. His vision and expertise will help EVLT ensure it remains a top-tier accredited land trust.

Andrew provides financial leadership to small and medium-sized organizations. He is a director with the firm CFO Systems | CFO Capital - a dynamic team of Accounting, Finance, Capital, and H.R. professionals - which serves all types of organizations in a "fractional" capacity.

When not helping his clients achieve their goals, Andy spends as much time as possible in the great outdoors with his wife Lindsey and dog Atlas. You can regularly find him in the backcountry on skis, on a mountain bike, on the river, or on a mountain top.
