We protect Texas

Who We Are

Land unites us all

As Texans, we believe in our responsibility to protect our own backyard and conserve our most valuable resources—our land, water, and traditions. As an accredited 501(c)(3) nonprofit land trust, our service area spans from the high plains in west Texas, through the Hill Country, to the productive farmland and coastal fisheries and wetlands near the Gulf of Mexico.

To maintain the Texas lifestyle we all know and are proud of, we have to protect our home. We have to earn the right to the landscape and its traditions. That all comes with working together to conserve the land that unites us.

Our Team

Colorado River Land Trust is governed by a board of directors comprised of volunteers from varying professional backgrounds and powered by an experienced, driven staff.


We believe that Texas makes us better. That Texas is a privilege. And Texas is earned. This means it’s our duty to maintain and conserve Texas—our home. Just like the certainty that the land will continue to change and our rivers will keep on flowing, one thing we can guarantee: the work of Colorado River Land Trust is rooted in forever.
