Highlights of EVLT's Recent Activities:

Save the Date for the Eagle Valley Land Trust Legacy Festival

Saturday August 8, 2015, Eagle Town Park, 4:00-7:00pm

Together, we are all making a difference!


The EVLT Legacy Festival brings together rural non-profits, local agencies, and local businesses that have conservation in their mission and business plan to celebrate our community's efforts towards making this place even better in the future. Combining last year's hugely successful cow patty bingo event, the conservation theme of EVLT's past Evergreen Ball events, and an exposition for community organizations and businesses that incorporate conservation into their mission and business plans, it is sure to be a great time! 


Free entry to all. Cow patty bingo tickets on sale here.


With over 300 people expected in attendance, the 2015 EVLT Legacy Festival celebrates our community's collective conservation efforts and features the return of the last year's popular cow patty bingo game.


Closing Preparations on Horse Mountain: EVLT is preparing for closing on the Horse Mountain conservation easement which conserves 200 mountain-top acres south of Eagle, Colorado. Horse Mountain is a prominent peak overlooking the Brush Creek valley with a BLM road providing access for potential development that would have a huge impact on the fantastic scenery of this beautiful valley.

Visible from the rapidly-growing town of Eagle, Horse Mountain (pictured here, right of center) will be protected forever by a conservation easement held by EVLT.


Land Conservation Progresses on the Colorado River: EVLT is currently collaborating with Colorado Parks and Wildlife to submit an application for grant funding for a stunning ranch in Eagle County containing senior water rights and over 1/2 mile of Colorado river frontage. As more details can be made public, we will provide them!


Outreach: EVLT attended the Eagle Outside Festival in May to promote its land conservation mission and to spread the word about the EVLT Legacy Festival.

Did you know...

...the State of Colorado has passed SB-206 which increases the incentive for land conservation from $375,000 to $1.5M! Thats a HUGE increase and EVLT anticipates an increase in the pace of land conservation in Eagle County because of it. For more information, read here or contact us at 970-748-7654 or exec@evlt.org.
The Gates family granted a conservation easement to Eagle Valley Land Trust over their 740 acre ranch in Eagle County in 2006. Increased incentives by the State of Colorado will encourage more conservation in Eagle County.

...the wilderness folks seemed to have made a better proposal this time around, working collaboratively with motorized and mechanized (primarily mountain bikes) recreation groups to increase wilderness designations in Colorado including the Gore Range visible from Piney Lake. For more information on the proposed bill click here.
