preserving mountains and forests
The Rocky Mountains comprise the great backbone of North America, extending 3,000 miles from Canada to Mexico. Elevations range upward to more than 14,000 feet. The Rockies are made up of many mountain ranges with unique ecological features. Natural beauty, abundant wildlife, and fresh water have attracted human inhabitants for the last 10,000-12,000 years. Today more people than ever are calling the Rocky Mountains home.
Pressures to develop even the most remote regions are threatening fragile mountain and forest environments. Our goal is long-term forest health and a sustainable landscape.
The Greenlands Reserve currently holds conservation easements on seventeen forested properties in the mountain regions of Colorado, eight of which are historical mine in-holding sites surrounded by Dedicated Wilderness. Forest health plans are already implemented on six conservation easement parcels.
