“If you’re curious about the county’s 3,142 acres of open space and 14,556 acres of conserved land the calendars are a good resource. They include a map and beautiful color photographs of many of the properties we’ve protected,” said Open Space and Trails Ranger, John Armstrong.
Pitkin County Open Space and Trails was established by the voters of Pitkin County in 1990 by a ballot initiative creating a county program for the purpose of acquiring open spaces and developing trails. The program is funded by a property tax. In November 2006, the program was re-authorized by a 72% voter approval and the Aspen/Snowmass Nordic Trails System was added to the program.
