Land Protection Fund

One of the major priorities for Rocky Mountain National Park is to protect its aesthetics and scenic viability for the future. Occasionally this requires purchasing land or easements along the park's boundary.

Since the early 1980s, the Rocky Mountain Nature Association has assumed a leadership role in acquiring many important parcels of land, both in Rocky Mountain National Park and in the adjacent Arapaho-Roosevelt National Forest and transferring the land to these federal agencies. Protecting land within and around the park requires preparation - being able to step forward when a willing seller places property on the market, while negotiating a fair purchase price or easement.

Only land that is truly significant to the long-term benefit of the park or forest will be considered.
