Protecting the Future

Preserving the Past

In 2001, Neil and Terry Seitz, the owners of Valley View Hot Springs for thirty-five years, founded the Orient Land Trust. Their deep commitment to preserving the Everson Ranch, Valley View Hot Springs, and the Orient Mine, and their belief that these resources are too valuable to be owned by any individual, led to the creation of the Orient Land Trust. Neil and Terry’s foresight, vision, and continued dedication to preserving this historic and geographically unique piece of the Earth inspires us to preserve this land for all to enjoy for all time.

Seitz’s selfless donation of these properties laid the groundwork for preserving extensive, unbroken landscapes and implementing numerous innovative ways to utilize warm waterways across Valley View. With their guidance and member support, OLT increased this open space to protect natural, wild, agricultural, and historic resources in the northern San Luis Valley.

Our naturist, clothing-optional culture provides an opportunity for nude recreation in a welcoming environment. The natural, pristine waters are used for soaking, drinking, heating, and electricity generation, as well as providing a home for threatened fish habitat and irrigation at Everson Ranch. The lands we protect are incredibly beautiful, with wildlife corridors, hiking trails, mountain views, and star-filled nights, making it worth preserving. Today, Orient Land Trust preserves nearly 2,500 acres in the northern San Luis Valley, a significant area that your support can help to preserve for future generations.
