Donate TODAY and help us grow the
Arkansas River Community Preserve

The Arkansas River Community (ARC) Preserve is a vital expanse of land and Arkansas River frontage in Lake County. The Preserve currently protects 271 acres and includes 3 miles of the Arkansas River. Central Colorado Conservancy has forever protected this land through purchasing properties from willing landowners and then placing a conservation easement on the properties. The ARC Preserve provides critical access to the river for wildlife and birds as well as a corridor to the high country above. In the coming months, the Preserve will be opened to public access and afford all of us the opportunity to fish, hike, and enjoy the wildlife on this incredible piece of land!

With your help, we have the opportunity to expand the ARC Preserve, forever protecting nearly 75 additional acres. We need to raise $40,000 in matching funds to complete the acquisition! Through the generosity of a local donor, we have received $10,000 towards the expansion. Can you help us to raise the additional $30,000?

We hope you will consider supporting the ARC Preserve expansion with a gift today! Please use the form below to make your donation online or you can mail your donation to the address listed to the right.
