To support the Conservation Futures Project

With so much invested in Colorado’s land trusts, Gates Family Foundation and a coalition of long-term land conservation partners launched the Conservation Futures Project in 2018. Through the yearlong project, land conservation leaders and funders from across the state came together to explore big-picture challenges that can’t be solved by any single organization.
In December 2018, the Conservation Futures Project resulted in an expanded coalition of partners forging a common vision and path forward for the land conservation community, with a goal of ensuring perpetual stewardship of the state’s conserved private lands. The new coalition, Keep It Colorado, launched in early 2019.
