If These Mountains Die
Colorado Conservation

Yampa Valley Land Trust works to conserve the incredible landscapes found throughout the Yampa Valley and Northwest Colorado that:

Inspire us in our art, music and passion for our community;

Allow our imaginations to wander, create and innovate;

Sustain us to be larger than life and to address large projects on behalf of our community;

Nourish our love – for each other, the Valley and Northwest Colorado;

Support those thoughtful, caring individuals that will guide us to a better world – in this generation and those that follow.


ADDITIONALLY – Yampa Valley Land Trust works to provide opportunities to get outdoors, to learn from nature and enjoy recreational activities, keeping us healthy and happy.


Along with many land conservation projects that address the identified top community priority of protecting

important wildlife habitat,

working agricultural lands and the

outstanding scenic vistas


found throughout the area, Yampa Valley Land Trust has helped to bring appropriate new public access to our community for recreation close to the City of Steamboat Springs – with new access on Emerald Mountain, Howelsen Hill and the Yampa River to hike, ski, snowshoe, mountain bike, boat, fish, watch wildlife and birds, horseback ride, and just relax and contemplate.  All of these open land assets and recreational amenities create the quality of life that is ranked number one with both residents and visitors alike.  Yampa Valley Land Trust is the only non-profit land conservation organization working in Northwest Colorado addressing this spectrum of top community priorities.
