The Douglas Land Conservancy is a non-partisan, non-profit land trust dedicated to the protection and conservation of the natural character, habitat, and open space of the central front range region of Colorado, including Douglas County and surrounding areas. Based in Castle Rock, Colorado since 1987, DLC primarily serves Douglas County. However, recognizing the importance of a regional approach in land conservation DLC has recently broadened its focus to include surrounding counties including Jefferson and Elbert.
In the last year, DLC added 3,600 acres to the lands currently protected by conservation easements. Today, we are actively preserving over 21,000 acres in Douglas, Jefferson and Elbert Counties. All of this is made possible because of generous support from donors, volunteers and land owners.
