Aspen Valley Land Trust’s (AVLT) mission is to permanently preserve open lands for agriculture, wildlife habitat, and scenic enjoyment and recreation in the greater Roaring Fork and Colorado River valleys. Since 1967, AVLT has worked hand in hand with private landowners and partners to conserve almost 40,000 acres of land. AVLT’s legal and ethical commitment also extends to ensuring permanent stewardship and enforcement of conservation easements– much like the commitment we must all make to assure our fresh air, clean water, local food supply, scenic views, and wildlife thrive long after our own lifetimes.
Aspen Valley Land Trust is a private, not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization guided by volunteer members of the Board of Directors. AVLT’s work is supported by charitable contributions.
As the oldest land trust in the State of Colorado, Aspen Valley Land Trust is an acknowledged leader in the conservation community. AVLT is accredited by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission and certified by the State of Colorado.
