Colorado is the first state in the nation to have an entire day dedicated to recognizing and enjoying our public lands! This year, May 20th is our opportunity to celebrate the beauty and significance of Colorado’s wide-open, accessible, scenic views and recreation areas.
We've been saving land and protecting it for future generations for 40 years now! Our friends at Inasmuch Foundation and a private donor are helping us celebrate by providing matching grants for donations of $1,000 or more.
Solitude Park is a stunning 300-acre open space adjacent to the Cedar Heights neighborhood in Colorado Springs. While the area is usually closed to the public, a couple residents of Cedar Heights who have been instrumental in working to manage the property recently took a few Palmer Land Trust supporters on a tour of the land.
In partnership with the City of Colorado Springs and The Broadmoor, Palmer Land Trust has permanently protected the Strawberry Hill property, also known as Strawberry Fields. The conservation easement on the property ensures perpetual public access and open space protection.
