COL has conserved the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory (RMBL) 270-acre research site! RMBL is one of the largest, oldest, and most productive sites for field research on earth. It will now remain so as a protected living laboratory, centered in the Town of Gothic, just north of Crested Butte. Photo provided by RMBL.
Spring newsletter now available!
Our Spring 2020 Newsletter focuses on the passage of time. When land is protected under its most powerful tool, the conservation easement, we can rest assured that Colorado's lands and water will stay protected, no matter what the future holds.
Currently, the physical offices of Colorado Open Lands are temporarily closed, and our staff is working remotely in the interest of public health and safety. We will update you here as things change. Our office phone extensions are being forwarded, and emails and voicemails are being checked regularly, so please contact the COL staff as you would normally, or you can use the general contact form. Please stay safe and healthy out there.
It’s no secret that Colorado residents and visitors love their outdoor experiences. Access for all ages and ability levels to open space contributes to our health, both physical, mental, and emotional.
