The Rocky Mountain Land Library's simple mission is to encourage a greater awareness of the land and access to stewardship tools so that we may work together to preserve our land.
Its 20,000 + volume natural history library is especially focused on the land and communities of the Rocky Mountains. The Land Library is currently engaged in a site search to provide both the shelves and proper environment for a truly unique residential land-study center.
