TELLURIDE VALLEY FLOOR FOREVER WILD
On August 4, 2009 the Telluride Town Council unanimously approved the Valley Floor Conservation Easement, finalizing the intent that the Valley Floor will remain open space into perpetuity.
At the same meeting Town Council approved the final draft of the Valley Floor Management Plan. The Management Plan is the guiding document which specifically regulates uses, restoration activities, and the conservation style management approach that will be used for the property within the direction of the Conservation Easement. While the Conservation Easement is a permanent, unchanging document, the Management Plan will be revisited and updated as time passes.
After successfully completing the fundraising and education campaign to secure acquisition of the Valley Floor in 2008, the Valley Floor Preservation Partners is now furthering stewardship efforts and supporting ecological restoration projects, which improve the natural habitat of the property.
