In 2017, Colorado Open Lands took attendees of Land Trust Alliance's Rally: The National Land Conservation Conference on a field trip north of Denver to tour a local foods co-operative. Four years later, we've finalized our first conservation easement with Poudre Valley Community Farms. The Dixon Station farm in Wellington, Colorado is now protected under easement.
One of Colorado's most iconic natural sights is the deep yellow glow of our autumn aspen leaves. Aspen trees share a root system with their nearby brethren, and although they might seem like separate organisms, they are truly one living thing.
