Expore AVLT's conserved properties on the slippy map of Google Maps™ or the spinny globe of Google Earth™. Each mapping application has pros and cons for viewing information about places, so we will present both applications for you to explore. The map on this page may take a few moments (up to 1 minute) to load! We recommend using Mozilla Firefox as your internet browser for speedier map viewing and downloads.
Download KML file to view AVLT's conserved properties in Google Earth™
We recommend viewing our conserved properties in Google Earth™ in order to better appreciate the scope of the effort. Clicking above will result in a KML file download. Open the file to view in Google Earth™ (this may occur automatically). If you don't have Google Earth on your computer, visit the Google Earth website for a free download. Once you fly around a bit you'll realize it was worth any hassle.
Once you have downloaded AVLT's Google Earth file, you may turn map layers and labels on and off by selecting boxes for "AVLT Easements" and "AVLT Easement Lables" under the "AVLT-Master" heading in the left sidebar. More information about each property is available by clicking the aspen leaf icons that appear when labels are selected.
To view Colorado Natural Heritage Program Potential Conservation Areas, select the box for "Potential Conservation Areas", and check "PCA labels" for identification. When "PCA labels" are selected, you may click the purple leaf icons to view the 2005-2006 updated status report and photos for that PCA by West Elks Consulting.
