The Table Mountains Conservation Fund is a
state-registered non-profit 501(C)(3)
organization founded by the citizens of Golden,
Colorado, and surrounding communities to
preserve and protect the mesas and sides of
North and South Table Mountain. The
organization's objective is to educate the
public about the value of North and South Table
Mountain and to support their preservation as
natural and historic treasures.
The table mountains have been designated as high
priorities for open space acquisition by
Jefferson County for over 30 years. There are
approximately 3825 acres of potential open space
with current acquisition directed toward the
remaining private ownership of 400 acres on
South Table Mountain. North Table Mountain is
virtually all open space. The table mountains
are ideal for preserving as they contain
seasonal wetlands, significant geological and
paleontological sites, and bird habitats. Both
mountains serve as part of an undeveloped buffer
zone between the rapidly growing Denver
metropolitan area and the Rocky Mountains.
The Table Mountains Conservation Fund, Inc.
seeks strategic partnerships with private
conservation, and environmental groups and
sponsors educational events for the community.
