Latest On The Conservation Gateway

A well-managed and operational Conservation Gateway is in our future! Marketing, Conservation, and Science have partnered on a plan to rebuild the Gateway into the organization’s enterprise content management system (AEM), with a planned launch of a minimal viable product in late 2024. If you’re interested in learning more about the project, reach out to for more info!

Climate change is already putting people, plants, animals, and their habitats at risk.  Scientists project that warming will continue, with more heat waves, earlier snowmelt, declines in river flow, and more frequent and severe droughts. It is critical that we minimize impacts on nature and people through both adaptation and mitigation.

Tackling climate change is one of the Conservancy’s top priorities. Our climate goal in Colorado is to reduce greenhouse gases and increase the resilience of nature and people, leveraging greater impact at scale. Our three key strategies are: 1)  planning/assessment to ensure that our conservation strategies are climate smart; 2) piloting natural climate solutions for application at scale, e.g., on the ground projects to build resilience and sequester carbon; and 3) broadening support for climate action and clean energy. We work with diverse partners to develop and implement strategies to reduce the impacts of climate change on nature and people.
