Letter: Thanks for supporting Land & Rivers Fun

Eagle Valley Land Trust and Eagle River Watershed Council wish to thank all Land & Rivers Fund participating businesses and customers as 2021 ramps up. Despite a year of uncertainty, the program continued to grow in 2020 — success which wouldn’t be possible without the belief in the importance of the Land & Rivers Fund mission. As we move into the third year of the Land & Rivers Fund, we want to offer sincere thanks for the efforts of the participating business community, as well as the customers who support the program.

Participating businesses typically add an optional 1% charge at their point of sale, which is split evenly between the Watershed Council and EVLT. At the end of December, both organizations received a significant disbursement of funds from participating businesses and customers. This funding goes directly to protecting the land and rivers we love right here in Eagle County. For example, in 2020, it helped the Watershed Council monitor and protect 68 miles of rivers and streams and EVLT permanently conserve more than 2,000 acres, both in Eagle County.
