La Plata Open Space Conservancy’s mission is to permanently protect open lands that have significant agricultural, wildlife habitat, open space, recreational and/or historical/archaeological resources for the benefit of the community and the general public.
Your cherished lands and open space places contribute to a life of fulfillment, happiness, and memories. Protecting your land and your memories for future generations can be accomplished through planned giving and conservation easements.
The Power of Conservation
"When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect."
