Our Mission: 

Working with communities and landowners to preserve southwestern Utah's heritage of scenic beauty, open lands, and quality of life.

Coming Up: 

We are looking for business partners who will help us expand the impact of the Greater Zion Conservation Fund, a community based initiative to protect lands in and around Zion National Park. The GZCF is a voluntary program. Local business collect a 1% or other amount based donation on purchases of goods and services. Funds are remitted to the Virgin River Land Preservation Association and used to permanently preserve scenic vistas, open space, wildlife habitat, historically significant lands, and traditional land uses, such as ranching and farming, in the Greater Zion area.

For more information, please contact Louise Excell by email at 

Also, help us to thank partners who have picked up the torch and are leading this program toward a big future with your patronage: The Cliffrose Lodge in Springdale.

Thank you!!


The Importance of Volunteers to our Mission:

Over the past 22 years, VRLPA has protected nearly 5,000 acres through purchase of land and conservation easements. As we head into the next 20 years, dedicated volunteers will continue to represent the backbone of our efforts. Whether serving as a Board Member or helping with community outreach, fundraising, or easement stewardship activities, there are numerous ways to get involved.
