rio grande headwaters land trust
At the Rio Grande Headwaters Land Trust, we act out of a deep conviction that land and water conservation contribute to sustaining the vitality of our agricultural heritage and economy, our exceptional wildlife habitat, the scenic beauty all around us and our rural quality of life. Founded as the community’s land trust in 1999 to help secure land and water for the future, the Rio Grande Headwaters Land Trust (RiGHT) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and is the only local land trust that serves the entire San Luis Valley. RiGHT is committed to working with private landowners, public agencies, and other conservation organizations to preserve the natural beauty and wildlife habitat of the area and to promote a sustainable agricultural way of life. Our goals are to protect and support working ranches and farms, water resources, wildlife habitat, scenic landscapes, and to inspire a culture of conservation in the San Luis Valley.
