Colorado West Land Trust has announced a merger with Black Canyon Regional Land Trust to better serve the conservation needs of western Colorado.   In 2017 the two organizations consolidated operations but continued as two separate legal entities.  The success of this collaboration led to the full legal merger.  Great Outdoors Colorado provided a grant to assist with the costs of the merger as part of its Resilient Communities Program.  Colorado West Land Trust will remain headquartered in Grand Junction with a satellite office in Montrose.  Congratulations to both organizations!
