Proudly serving Northwest Colorado for 25 years!

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

YVLT conserves open land resources that safeguard the region’s stunning landscapes, gushing rivers and trout-filled streams, clean mountain air, life-sustaining 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.  We still have so much more land to protect throughout this region, and YVLT can’t do it without your support!
