OUR WORK IS FOREVER. AND THE BENEFITS ARE FOR ALL.
EAGLE VALLEY LAND TRUST CONSERVATION CENTER CAMPAIGN
In 2022, Eagle Valley Land Trust was presented with an opportunity to acquire the iconic Wildflower Farm in the heart of Edwards, along the Eagle River Preserve. With community input from our land stewards, conservationists, landowners, community and nonprofit partners, it became clear that there is a need for a community hub to address issues around land conservation, protecting our wildlife, and learning about the balance of people, community needs, and conservation.
In 2023, we launched the Eagle Valley Land Trust Conservation Campaign to help us acquire the Wildflower Farm and create this unique place that will help elevate our conservation work far into the future.
It will be a more integral and visible part of our community and will allow us to inspire, educate and collaborate with others who share our passion. It will support conservation education and ensure ALL members of the community and visitors can access open space. And, it will become a home for Eagle Valley Outdoor Movement programming to provide greater outdoor access for underserved individuals in Eagle County, particularly among the Latinx community through a bilingual outdoor adventure center and gear library.
The Conservation Center will help us:
• Protect more land and wildlife in Eagle County.
• Address barriers to accessing nature.
• Support landowners in conserving their land.
• Create a hub for conservation in our community.
• Secure a community gathering space and facility.
• Open new opportunities for collaboration.
• Increase the visibility and accessibility of conservation locally.
To ensure this dream becomes a reality, the Eagle Valley Land Trust has identified a $7.2 million fundraising goal. These funds will be raised to support the following priorities of Eagle Valley Land Trust:
