Ways to Partner with Us
A few options for partnering are listed below. However, if you have a partnership opportunity, please reach out.
Eagle County Open Space is the major funder and owner of permanently conserved land in Eagle County. The land trust and the county collaborate frequently to conserve those places that make Eagle County a great place to live and visit. In most cases, the land trust holds conservation easements on the land to ensure forever that it will never be sold or used for purposes other than open space.
Eagle River Watershed Council believes that our rivers and streams are the life-blood of our valley. Their preservation and restoration improves our economy, our culture, and our quality of life. EVLT and ERWC work together to promote the preservation of land and water for our community.
Walking Mountains Science Center provide locals and visitors from pre-k to gray with opportunities to explore nature, gain a scientific understanding, and learn about the many wonders of our mountain environment through natural science and sustainability programs. The partnership with Walking Mountains Science Center helps EVLT deliver its Future Conservationists youth education program and allows Walking Mountains to deliver a more robust curriculum to its youth participants.
Eagle Valley Wild (EVW) is a non-profit enterprise that dramatically enhances the capabilities of regional conservation-related organizations by providing professional photographic services and imagery, free of charge. Simultaneously, EVW reveals the beauty & value of our land, water and wildlife to our community and our visitors in order to garner more support for conservation-related efforts and initiatives.
