Review from Guidestar
The Summit Land Conservancy permanently protects hundreds of acres of agricultural, recreational, scenic, wetland and animal habitat lands in Summit County, while working out of an office with less than 100 square feet!
The Summit Land Conservancy is agile and increasingly effective in championing the need to preserve open space in our mountain community. In the past 24 months, the organization has matured, tackled bigger and more complex projects, and elevated its profile in the county. It's gratifying to see the progress they are making.
I've been a fan and supporter of the Summit Land Conservancy for years. It seems to get better and more effective year after year. The staff is enthusiastic (and way underpaid) and creative. The SLC Executive Director has a passion for open space and is very effective at communicating her vision to the community, her board and her staff. In a down economy she is just as positive and even more creative with fund raisers, projects and team building. The SLC has recently partnered with Park City Municipal to save 121 acres on one of our two entry corridors. The city and Cheryl Fox were able to negotiate a conservation easement on this acreage that in years past seemed impossible. The visibility that the Summit Land Conservancy has created is an example for all other non profits to copy. I think the entire community will be stepping up to help out this incredible organization Bill Cunningham 2945 American Saddler Dr. Park City, Utah
