Eagle Valley Land Trust

Eagle County is a seat of major watersheds. The Eagle River--to which Avon, Eagle-Vail, Edwards, Eagle, and more are neighbors--flows to the Gulf of California via the Colorado River. Along its almost 1,500-mile path, the Colorado River touches or crosses 7 U.S. states and supplies scores of communities with precious water. Just another reason Eagle County is special, and why it's important to protect our lands so we can maintain healthy rivers.
