The land – it’s why we live here. Palmer Land Trust is committed to conserving the iconic and beloved lands that make southern Colorado home. From expanding recreational opportunities with parks and open spaces, to preserving working farms and ranches, to safeguarding the amazing views we all love, Palmer is dedicated to a community united around land as essential to our identity, economy, and quality of life.
Palmer Land Trust is focused on what matters most with our land – water, recreation, local food, and views. Each are critical to maintaining our health and way of life in southern Colorado. The population of Colorado is expected to nearly double by 2050, so it is essential to protect the unique lands that make this home, today.
We are looking for community champions who would like to spread the word about our work.
Did you know that for every $1 invested in land conservation, Colorado residents receive up to $12 in economic benefits?
“Coming from many generations who have farmed the land, I see Palmer’s efforts to keep our precious supplies of water attached to working farms as essential to preserving economic viability and a future for the families who make it possible.” — Paula Chostner, Palmer Trustee
