Douglas County Open Space began as a land conservation program in 1995 to preserve land, protect natural resources and provide appropriate educational and recreational opportunities. Citizens of the County voted to support the program with a one-sixth of one percent sales tax that has protected almost 50,000 acres of land. Ten trailheads on these Douglas County open space properties are open to the public with 77 miles of trails.
