Jefferson County Open Space Program was created by a vote of Jefferson County citizens in 1972 to preserve open space land. The program is funded by a 0.5% sales tax on the county's retail sales. The goal of the Open Space Program is to preserve and enhance the county’s uniqueness, striking mountain vistas, rolling plains, fish-filled streams, and abundant wildlife.
