Lake Fork Valley Conservancy


The Lake Fork Valley Conservancy strives to sustain and enhance the rural and environmental character of the Gunnison River Valley through education, restoration, and stewardship


We envision the Lake Fork of the Gunnison River drainage as a healthy watershed, defined by a balance of resource conservation, economic opportunity, recreational activities, and community values. We envision a broad-based partnership of an educated citizenry, nonprofit groups, and governmental entities that sustains, protects, and improves the health of the watershed.


The Lake Fork Valley Conservancy is comprised of our staff, our board of directors, and a technical advisory committee, Formerly known as the Lake Fork Watershed Stakeholders. 

The advisory committee is a partnership of citizens, private entities, local organizations, and government. The group came together in 2002 to enhance understanding of the resources and impacts within our valley, and to initiate a collaborate, community effort to proactively address these issues.
