Hosting Partner

San Isabel Land Protection Trust

Colorado, with its famous landscapes, abundant wildlife and Wild West heritage, continues to experience steady population growth. While growth has many benefits, the costs in the San Isabel region are significant. Subdivision, habitat loss and permanent dry-up of productive agricultural lands threaten our land, water and wildlife.

San Isabel Land Protection Trust works to protect our quality of life, which depends on a healthy, intact and beautiful landscape.

Upcoming workshops

The Quivira Coalition hosts a number of workshops throughout the year for land managers interested in improving or maintaining the health of the land they steward. These workshops usually consist of one to three days on a working ranch where participants are given the opportunity to learn by doing. Topics include erosion control, biological monitoring, pasture management, soil health assessment, plant identification, native seed harvesting and more. Typically, we partner with one or several ranchers and organizations to bring a number of perspectives and types of expertise to the conversation.
