Since 1977, Palmer Land Conservancy has worked with individuals, private and public partners, and various communities to protect 138,000 acres of land forever including 20 of your favorite public parks and open spaces, important working farms and ranches, and iconic scenic views. We passionately promote the conservation and enjoyment of our region’s most important natural assets that define why we love Colorado: its natural beauty, locally grown food, and outdoor recreation.
Palmer’s conservation work throughout southern Colorado over the last 45 years spans 19 counties representing over 1 million people. We celebrate with you all that we’ve been able to protect for today, tomorrow and future generations.
That the health, recreation, and spiritual benefits of land and nature are available to everyone.
To protect land and water for the wellbeing of nature and people.
We are committed to protecting land and water for the well-being of nature and people.
To achieve our mission, our work is focused on four conservation priorities:
Celebrating and connecting people to the land and nature through the conservation of open spaces and public parks, and bringing green spaces to our urban centers.
Strengthening rural communities and economies by protecting local farms and ranches, and connecting urban dwellers to essential local food systems.
Safeguarding the health and resiliency of landscapes that support wildlife, biodiversity, waterways, and wetlands.
Advancing large-scale water initiatives that balance the competing needs of water in the West and prioritize community needs and goals.
