The mission of the Colorado Coalition of Land Trusts is to
promote and support land conservation excellence in Colorado.
CCLT is Colorado's statewide membership organization for the land conservation community. We work to be a voice for the community and to secure support for increasing open space, and preserving agricultural land and water ways. We provide continuing education for our membership to ensure we have the knowledge and skills to conserve land in a way that is collaborative, cost-effective, and lasting.
Together, members of CCLT have preserved over 2 million acres of Colorado’s most cherished lands, including family farms and ranches, wildlife habitat, popular trails, recreational areas, and scenic vistas that have made Colorado famous. Colorado is one of the most effective states in the country when it comes to conservation activity.
CCLT's Annual Conservation Excellence Conference is the place for the land conservation community across the Rocky Mountain region to share knowledge and network. With more than 250 attendees annually, CCLT's conference helps define and influence the future of land conservation in the Intermountain West.
CCLT is the collective voice for Colorado land conservation working on statewide public policy issues and providing continuing education for the Colorado land conservation community. Our membership includes 32 land trusts, 11 public agencies, and 27 professional members.
CCLT partnered with BackOffice Thinking to create and oversee LOCATE, a powerful database app for land conservation organizations. LOCATE manages all land acquisition, stewardship activities, donor, membership, and grant information. Plus you get all the power of the Salesforce CRM platform.
