What is the difference between the Eagle Valley Land Trust and the Eagle County Open Space Committee?

by Bergen Tjossem

Although the ultimate goal of both organizations is to protect the natural and scenic resources of the Eagle Valley, the method of doing so varies between organizations. The Eagle Valley Land Trust is a non-political organization that uses the conservation easement as its primary tool to help conserve privately owned lands in perpetuity. The Eagle County Open Space Advisory Committee was formed as part of the voter-approved Referendum 1H to provide recommendations to the Eagle County Board of Commissioners on the use of tax-generated open space funds.
