Season’s Greetings

As we settle into the winter season here in Crested Butte, I want to express my gratitude for your support this past year. With your help, the Land Trust improved access at Long Lake, advanced a landmark deal to keep Red Lady mine free, and worked to protect the Slate River Wetlands in the upper valley. As a subscriber to our monthly Mountain Memo, you’ve shown your commitment to remaining engaged in the mission of the Crested Butte Land Trust. Thank you!

My pledge to you in the new year is to maintain the Crested Butte Land Trust’s high standards for conservation in your community. From the summit of Mt. Emmons to the headwaters of the Gunnison River, we are excited to keep you posted on our progress. Until then, wishing you and yours a safe and happy holiday season

Warmest Regards,
Jake Jones
Executive Director
