TELLURIDE VALLEY FLOOR FOREVER WILD
Updated September 2009
On August 4th 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.
The Valley Floor Preservation Partners are exploring ways to implement restoration activities, encourage wildlife habitat while allowing human uses of the property and establishing educational and stewardship programs for the property.
