Keep It Colorado (formerly Colorado Coalition of Land Trusts) Updated:06/2022

The natural spaces and places in Colorado are uniquely special. Those who love this state want to protect all that’s precious here:
Clean water. Abundant wildlife. An outdoor way of life. Unblemished views of our iconic landscapes. Sustainable, local, working farms and ranches.

Since 1965, land trusts - our core members - and their partners have helped Colorado families conserve more than 3 million acres of
working lands, wildlife habitat and open spaces that define our state and contribute to our quality of life.

Keep It Colorado is continuing that legacy of conservation through our coalition.

Keep it Colorado is a nonprofit coalition of conservation organizations working to protect the lands and waters that define our state. We are intent on creating a future in which conservation, protection and stewardship are priorities for Colorado’s communities.

We are the only coalition in Colorado that is elevating the voice of organizations doing on-the-ground private lands conservation - and we do this by bringing together multiple sectors to advance conservation across this great state.

Land trusts form the core of our membership, and we represent their interests. We are also a voice for public agencies, nonprofits and other conservation champions that are conserving and stewarding Colorado’s private and public lands and water.

Collectively, our coalition’s work:

  • continues the legacy and heritage of Colorado’s working family farms and ranches;
  • protects our state’s large, connected natural areas that define Colorado - including open spaces and scenic vistas, rivers and lakes, and fish and animals;
  • and enables Coloradans and visitors to enjoy our state’s iconic beauty, from the prairies and deserts to the mountains, today and in the future.
