Land Protection

Land protection is the core of Montezuma Land Conservancy. Montezuma Land Conservancy works with landowners, non-governmental organizations, and public entities to protect important habitat, agricultural land, and scenic open space. Through our land protection program, MLC has worked with more than 75 families to protect more than 46,023 acres in southwest Colorado via conservation easements.

MLC hosts a wide range of educational opportunities and experiences that strive to reconnect people to land. We offer workshops and varied outdoor programming on our 83-acre educational hub Fozzie's Farm, host school groups, provide paid internships for high school students, and offer a classroom space for the wider community to use as well.
