SLVEC's Mission is:

to protect and restore the biological diversity, ecosystems, and natural resources in the Upper Rio Grande Basin by balancing ecological values and sustainable human needs. 

SLVEC has directed its organizational energies to meet a diverse range of environmental and related threats and challenges within modest budget parameters.

SLVEC’s Background:

The San Luis Valley Ecosystem Council (SLVEC) is a 501C3 nonprofit corporation incorporated in 1998 by a group of citizens concerned about impacts to public lands around the San Luis Valley in Southern Colorado. 

We believe in the power of education, stewardship, community involvement, and public advocacy. If you would like to get involved, please contact info@slvec.org or call (719) 589-1518.
