A Summer Update from the Executive Director

Warm Summer Greetings~
I’m excited to be back in the saddle at Palmer Land Trust following my maternity leave where I had the opportunity to be with my little one, Camilla Kathleen Jewett, exploring this new parenthood adventure. With the arrival of Camilla, my work here at Palmer has taken on an even deeper meaning for me. I’m as committed as ever to creating a strong legacy of working farms and ranches, recreational opportunities, and inspiring scenic vistas for my daughter, a 6thgeneration Coloradan, and others, forever
I believe that one of the best ways of doing this is making sure people have access and opportunities to regularly connect with nature. After all, we’re all more inclined to protect what we love. Palmer is honored to have protected 19 public parks and open spaces throughout the Pikes Peak area.Recently the staff at Palmer Land Trust got together to talk about our favorite trails on Palmer Land Trust properties. You can check out our top picks here!
We’re doing all of this in the face of unprecedented development and population growth in Colorado where our communities are changing rapidly. This keeps me and the rest of us at Palmer motivated and focused on the important tasks at hand. We are grateful for your commitment too and invite you to join us at one of our farm-to-table dinners with A Grazing Life at Frost Farm and Livestock and at our 10th anniversary Southern Colorado Conservation Awards event on October 3.

Thank you for your support of Palmer and conservation in Colorado. Wishing you a great summer~
