Letter: Thank you for support of preservation

I write to thank all of the supporters of the preservation and stewardship of open lands in the headwaters of the Colorado River for attending and contribution to the Colorado Headwaters land Trust’s annual event, Land, Lunch and Lager, on July 15th. We owe special thanks to our Colorado River Sponsors Steve Sears, Jane Farrell and Munn Architecture. We could not have had such a successful event without the contributions of Karen Vance, B Lazy 2 Ranch, C Lazy U, Edward Jones and all of our other sponsors.

We are at a critical time in Grand County. Colorado’s population is expected to grow by 3 million people in the next 25 to 30 years and Grand County’s full time population will double in the same period. The demands on open lands and free flowing water, which drew us to Grand County in the first place, will increase dramatically with the rise in population. CHLT, in partnership with landowners and, it doing all it can to protect our open lands for the benefit of all.

Stewart McNab, Board President, Colorado Headwaters Land Trust
