The Land & Rivers Fund: A partnership with Eagle River Watershed Council
Eagle Valley Land Trust (EVLT) and Eagle River Watershed Council (ERWC) together are Eagle County’s only non-profits exclusively focused on conserving and protecting rivers and open spaces for the benefit of the community. In 2017, both organizations launched the Land & Rivers Fund to raise money to expand these conservation efforts.
The program helps local businesses establish and promote the program to their customers & clients who voluntarily participate by making a small donation with their purchase. Funds collected help promote and restore healthy rivers, clean water, conscientious development, preservation of open space, wildlife and fish habitat, agriculture, water rights, and economic diversity throughout the Valley. The program also supports a graduating high school senior furthering their education at a 2 or 4 year school studying natural resources, environmental science or sustainability, with a scholarship. To learn more about this Fund, please go to the Land & Rivers Fund website, and to support the program, please shop and patronize the businesses participating in it! You can find the complete list on the website.
