Colorado Cattlemen’s Agricultural Land Trust announces merger with the Yampa Valley Land Trust
For decades, the Colorado Cattlemen’s Agricultural Land Trust has worked to conserve Colorado’s unique natural resources. The Yampa Valley Land Trust (YVLT), founded nearly 30 years ago in Northwest Colorado, shares that mission. In a merger set to close on October 1, 2019, these two like-minded organizations will join forces to further a unified mission rooted in an essential truth:
Colorado isn’t just a collection of beautiful landscapes; it’s the embodiment of an ideal. Future generations deserve to experience the wonder and adventure of life lived here.
Together, CCALT and YVLT can make sure they do.
When YVLT began an exploration into how to best amplify its already successful conservation work and extend its infrastructure to achieve an even greater impact, CCALT presented a natural partnership worth exploring. Our shared long-term commitment to working with ranching and agricultural communities, combined with YVLT’s innovative conservation work, made the creation of a unified land trust mutually beneficial to CCALT, YVLT and the communities we serve.
