Douglas Land Conservancy (DLC) is a non-profit organization made up of concerned citizens. Based in Castle Rock, Colorado since 1987, DLC primarily serves Douglas County. However, recognizing the importance of a regional approach in land conservation DLC has recently broadened its focus to include surrounding counties including Jefferson and Elbert.
In the last year, DLC added 3,600 acres to the lands currently protected by conservation easements. Today, we are actively preserving over 21,000 acres in Douglas, Jefferson and Elbert Counties. All of this is made possible because of generous support from donors, volunteers and land owners.
With your Support DLC Annually Protects an Average of 840 Acres! In honor of Earth Day give the gift of open space by supporting Douglas Land Conservancy.
Did you know that DLC conserves an average of 70 acres each month in Douglas County alone and more than 840 acres annually?!
Since 1987 DLC has protected 21,838 acres from being developed, in perpetuity. These lands include agricultural lands, public recreation open space, scenic viewscapes, critical wildlife habitat, and wetlands.
Of that 21,383 acres, 11,102 acres are open to the public and provide great trail and recreational experiences for all to enjoy.
10,281 acres are private lands that protect agricultural operations, open space, scenic viewscapes, critical wildlife habitat, and wetlands from ever being developed.
It is DLC’s job to ensure that these properties are protected in perpetuity by visiting each property annually. The hardest part of our job begins once a conservation easement is put in place on the land.
We are fortunate to have great community support from individuals and families that make annual charitable contributions to DLC. Many have supported DLC for more than 10 years. You are helping make a difference.
