Habitat is vanishing, leaving wildlife with no place to go.

Our solution: Buy the Land.


The Southern Plains Land Trust purchases land for prairie wildlife. It’s that simple. So far, we’ve protected over 56,000 acres in our preserve network, providing urgently needed refuge to a wide variety of native grassland animals and plants. Piece by piece, we are restoring the American Serengeti.
SPLT is a member of the Land Trust Alliance, accredited by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission, certified by the State of Colorado to hold conservation easements, and a member of the Nature Needs Half Network. SPLT is a proud member of Keep It Colorado, a statewide coalition with a vision of a Colorado where people, lands, waters and wildlife thrive. We are also proud members of the Global Rewilding Alliance, working with partners around the world to recover the natural beauty, diversity, and resilience of Earth.
