MALT is proud of the thousands of acres we have been able to conserve in Colorado with the partnership of landowners to save natural areas, wildlife habitat, streams and rivers, working ranches and historic lands.  
We all benefit from private voluntary land agreements! 
A 2017 analysis from Colorado State University found that each dollar invested by the state for these (conservation) easements produced benefits of between $4 and $12 for Coloradans.  
Public benefits include clean water and air, scenic views, access to things produced by local farms and ranches products, and wildlife habitat: all things that contribute to a high quality of life in the state.
