Because life is better with

open space.


Saving land
is a good thing for us all.

People from around the world come here because of what our open lands offer: awe-inspiring views, incredible scenery and wildlife, world-class outdoor recreation, and an unparalleled lifestyle you can find nowhere else.

The Summit Land Conservancy works tirelessly to protect these lands and our communities. We hustle, we fundraise, we problem-solve, we negotiate, and we collaborate on agreements—everything it takes to preserve what we love about this place. This community, our donors, our landowners, and our visitors all depend on us to do it. And we relish the task.

Let’s Get Hoppy! Hoppy Hour | October 12


The hills are alive with… wild growing hops?

Mark your calendars for our favorite community event that celebrates Park City’s open spaces and the wild hops that grow on them! Join us Saturday, October 12 from 6-8 PM and taste our wild hops ale, Clothing Hoptional, brewed by our friends at Wasatch Brew Pub. This truly unique brew is crafted with hops, descendants from the plants brought here by German miners, harvested from places protected by the Summit Land Conservancy. Best part? All proceeds will save the lands you love.

Volunteer for our hops harvest September 13 HERE. Email to learn more!

Our next big event.

programs & events for all

Nearly every season of the year, we offer programs with a little good-timin’ for a good cause. Events include our nighttime Moon Shine Adventures, Hops Hunters Hikes, and even Outdoor Explorers and Little Explorers summer camps for kids! We aim to get people outside enjoying the open spaces we work so hard to protect. Because what we do is a gift that keeps on giving—to the entire community.

How we do it.


all together now.

Open space is the heart of our community. Since 2002, the Summit Land Conservancy has been preserving the regional landscapes you cherish in Park City and Summit County for future generations. We are a strictly local organization, staffed and run by area residents dedicated to saving land. We work with landowners, donors, our local government, and with partner organizations who share a stake in what we do. It takes a lot of creative problem-solving, and a heaping dose of community fun to get the job done.
