Cordillera Ridgeline Preserved Forever!
Visible for miles, a gift to the community

After several years of steady work by Eagle Valley Land Trust, Eagle County, and the White River National Forest, the 168-acre Cordillera Ridgeline is now permanently conserved.  The incredible value of this conservation project as an undeveloped scenic backdrop to Edwards, Lake Creek, Singletree, Cordillera and the Cordillera Valley Club, Mountain Star, and Wild Ridge communities cannot be underestimated. This property also provides important habitat for a variety of species including elk, deer, bear, and multitudes of songbirds.

EVLT has permanently conserved the 168-acre Cordillera Ridgeline property as pictured here from a roundabout in Edwards.

Generous support from donors like you continues to have a profound impact on land conservation in Eagle County. Now, t his important wildlife habitat and Colorado landscape in the heart of the valley will be protected for the benefit of our entire community... forever.

If You Could Preserve One Special Natural Place...

On January 8, 2016, EVLT hosted the "EVLT Land Conservation Station," one of three "social spaces" during TEDxVail at the Vilar Performing Arts Center. In keeping with the theme for 2016's TEDxVail, "naturally," we invited guests to an swer the question, "If you could preserve forever one special natural place in your community, what would it be?" 

Over the course of the evening, guests posted their ideas for all to see, sparking fantastic conversation about the future of beautiful places near and far. Pictured here, EVLT Office Manager, Nancy Glass and Executive Director, Jim Daus, stand beside the wall of responses. 
EVLT Welcomes Nancy Glass to the Team!

Did you know...

...Incentives for land conservation have increased again?  Incentives for land conservation have seen bipartisan support in Congress for decades. Just before the holidays, Congress changed a law to make additional tax deductions for the donations of conservation easements permanent. For the first time in years, landowners can be certain that after the process of conserving their land is completed (it can take months or even years), the additional tax benefits will be available.  Click here to read more .

...Eagle County's population is set to double in 25 Years? On January 4, 2016, the Vail Daily chronicled Eagle County's growth over the past three decades, and reported that "Eagle County ranks as the seventh fastest growing county in the state." Over the next 25 years, 41,000 people are expected to move to Eagle County. Will the Eagle County to which they are introduced be as beautiful as as it is today? Read the Vail Daily article by clicking here.
