Sustaining Stewards

An Investment You Can Count On

Sustaining Stewards are donors who give monthly or annually to provide the Crested Butte Land Trust with a dependable source of revenue. This allows the Land Trust to strategically plan and to respond swiftly as conservation or stewardship opportunities arise. Conserving and caring for our lands is an ever growing and constantly demanding task, and reliable donations mean we can faithfully do this year after year for generations to come. The Lower Loop trail system doesn’t maintain itself. Our community swimming hole, Long Lake, will require a lot of attention to avoid continued erosion and other user impacts over the coming years. Gunsight Bridge, the Lupine Trails, Slate River’s unique heron rookery and wetlands, and our astounding viewsheds all need care and attention to keep them protected for generations to come. The Land Trust cares for all of these local assets and more. Your investment ensures that our wildlife habitat, clean water, scenic vistas, recreational opportunities, and ranching heritage are protected forever. If you’ve ever been out on land managed by the Land Trust, please consider investing in your community by making a $50, $100, $500, or greater recurring donation to ensure we can continue caring for our piece of paradise together.
