Staff and Board

The boots on the ground

Building and maintaining strong relationships in our community is at the core of our work.

Our professional staff is dedicated to preserving the open space we all love in the Gunnison Valley. Whether they’re in the field clearing away rusting barbed wire or on the phone raising funds for the cause, the CBLT staff is always excited to hear from you!

We are led by a dedicated board of directors who generously volunteer their time for your Land Trust. Their varied expertise and professional backgrounds are valuable in shaping the direction and initiatives of the Crested Butte Land Trust.
