For landowners who care about conserving our community’s beloved spaces.

The Summit Land Conservancy is Summit County’s only locally based land trust.

We work with willing landowners to protect the working farms and ranches—many of which have been in families for generations—that bring so much value to our communities.

Are you interested in preserving your property from development and passing it down to future generations?

Please call Kate Sattelmeier at 435-649-9884 or email kate@wesaveland.org.
