Douglas Land Conservancy

The Douglas Land Conservancy is a 501 (c) 3 non-partisan, non-profit land trust dedicated to the protection and conservation of the natural character, habitat, and open space of the central front range region of Colorado, including Douglas County and surrounding areas. Formed in 1987 through a citizen initiative in response to alarming regional growth rates that far outpaced the rest of the country. DLC works in partnership with land owners, local governments, other conservation organizations and citizens to evaluate, accept and monitor conservation easements. These easements protect large tracts of open space from development for perpetuity. DLC has permanently preserved over 22,038 acres of open space in Douglas, Elbert and Jefferson County.  DLC is Nationally Accredited by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission and is a certified Land Trust in the State of Colorado.
