Division of Conservation: Renew Holder Certification

Renew Certification to Hold Conservation Easements for 2019

Following the passage of HB 18-1291, the Division has set the 2019 holder renewal fees and adopted emergency rules for the certification of conservation easement holders. The 2019 renewal application is available via the online form accessed at the link below. 

2019 CE Holder Certification Renewal Application

Please complete the form, provide a conservation easement project list (see below), and make payment. 

The Division will extend the due date until January 31, 2019. All holders presently certified for 2018 will retain their certification until the 2019 renewal application has been approved, or until February 1, 2019, whichever is sooner.

The fee is dependent upon: (1) whether the organization is nationally accredited, and (2) the desired certification level. Please see the rules and the fee schedule for details.

2019 Certification Project List

The project list includes minor edits for clarification, but follows the same format as last year's. In particular, applicants are no longer required to enter the date of each monitoring visit, but rather to affirm that the holder has a written record of annual monitoring in 2018. Please note that you may use last year's list and simply add a new line(s) for any conservation easement(s) acquired in the past year, and update the list to indicate that monitoring has been completed. Completed project lists may be submitted to aaron.welch@state.co.us in advance of the renewal application, or be uploaded as part of the renewal application.
