Our Mission

Our mission is to forever protect and steward open lands for vistas, recreation, wildlife, and ranching, thus contributing to the preservation of Gunnison County’s unique heritage and quality of life.

For over 30 years, the Crested Butte Land Trust has worked with partners to preserve scenic vistas, wildlife habitats, our ranching heritage, and recreational opportunities forever. Willing landowners, local ranchers, government entities, fellow nonprofits, and committed community members make this valuable work possible.
