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 members 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 action.
Leaders from across Colorado will convene for a half-day Conservation Futures Project summit in Breckenridge May 9. Because we will be starting to make decisions about the future direction of our statewide coalition at this summit, executive directors, and board members of each Colorado land trust are strongly encouraged to attend, as are representatives from open space groups and professional members of land trusts.
As a reminder, CCLT is formally partnering with Colorado Parks and Wildlife on the 2018 Partners in the Outdoors conference as a way to expand member opportunities for networking and collaboration with the broader conservation community. Early bird pricing for the conference registration is available through March 31. CPW conference registration is NOT required to attend the Conservation Futures Project Summit.
Our 80-organization membership includes land trusts, public agencies, and professional members. 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.
CCLT partnered with BackOffice Thinking to create 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.
