The Benefits of Conservation

Colorado State University’s new study illustrating the economic and ecological benefits of conservation, easements and tax credits is available now! Thank you to Keep It Colorado for their work on this!

Land Trust in the News
Sky-Hi News 01/20/24

Victoria Village, an attainable workforce housing project in Fraser, is moving forward with a potential partnership with the Colorado Headwaters Land Trust to try to preserve a Protected Natural Area on the land.

Victoria Village is a 11.3-acre parcel at the intersection of Park Avenue and Zerex Street. The parcel includes St. Louis Creek and its wetlands/floodplain habitat – essential for Fraser’s ecosystem that includes wildlife and humans. Since a Protected Natural Area cannot be developed on, Fraser chose the Headwaters Land Trust to potentially hold and monitor the area through a conservation easement.

During the town’s Jan. 3 meeting, trustees discussed the idea of an easement with the land trust and the complicated, yet necessary duties of preserving and improving the area.
