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 cost-effective and lasting.
Together, members of CCLT have preserved nearly 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.
The mission of the Colorado Coalition of Land Trusts is to
promote and support land conservation excellence in Colorado.

Each year, the Colorado Coalition of Land Trusts gathers conservation supporters our annual Brews, Boots and Bucks event with a short program, heavy appetizers, beer, wine, and a silent auction.
