Colorado Conservation


Yampa Valley Land Trust is a Steamboat Springs-based land conservation organization that works exclusively in Northwest Colorado, for Northwest Colorado.

YVLT conserves significant open land resources that safeguard the region’s stunning landscapes, gushing rivers, species-rich wildlife habitat, and productive ranchland that continues our rural cultural heritage.  We also want to open the door to new adventures and life experiences, connecting you to the natural world through strategic public recreation projects providing opportunities for hiking, biking, rafting, fishing, Nordic skiing, and watching wildlife.

To date, our organization has permanently protected over 56,130 acres across Routt, Moffat, Jackson, and Rio Blanco Counties.  But we still have so much more land to protect in this incredible region, and YVLT needs your help to do it.

Yampa Valley Land Trust truly values your support and we are excited to continue conserving land for the next 25 years and beyond!
