Summit Land Conservancy

A nonprofit organization

$147,737 raised by 638 donors

A lot has changed in the last 20 years.

Technology that we thought would keep us more connected turned out to create deeper divides.

Toddlers became teenagers.

Meadows filled with wildflowers and clear, cool streams were lost beneath pavement.

But if we learn one thing from nature, it is that change is what always happens-- And some of that is good.

Since 2002, the Summit Land Conservancy has been preserving priceless landscapes in Park City and the Wasatch Back for future generations. This year, the Summit Land Conservancy is celebrating the first 20 years of forever. Because… when we permanently conserve open space, we are making a commitment to steward and defend these beautiful places in perpetuity!

With the help and support of people like YOU, the Conservancy has come a long way. We've preserved farms and ranches along the Weber River from Oakley to Henefer. We've safeguarded sacred ground in the Ogden Valley. We've saved community greens where people can grab a coffee and play a game of fetch. We've protected iconic pasturelands that greet us every time we return home. We've conserved the recreational lands where we find solace and strength to face the changes that have been and those yet to come.

This Live PC Give PC, show your community that open space and clean water are important to YOU. It doesn't matter what you give; it matters THAT you give. 


The Summit Land Conservancy is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit established in 2002, dedicated to saving the open spaces of Park City and the Wasatch Back. We are Park City's local, accredited land trust! The money we raise here, stays here!


We protect and monitor 47 permanent conservation easements and 2 preserves on 8,000 acres of land - and we are currently working to preserve an additional 5,000+ acres of landscapes our community cherishes. Some properties we protect include:

  • Round Valley
  • McPolin Farmlands
  • Empire Canyon
  • Gambel Oak
  • Library Field
  • Rail Trail
  • Quarry Mountain


Our community depends on open land for our lifestyle, our recreation, our food sourcing, and even our drinking water. And yet, without our effort, most of these places are vulnerable to developers. Unlike other Western resort areas surrounded by public lands, our communities are surrounded by private property that is susceptible to development.
