Conservation Resource Center

Mike is an attorney specializing in real estate law and land conservation techniques. He has a law degree, as well as a master's degree in Natural Resource Management, both from the University of Michigan. Mike practiced real estate law for ten years as an associate, and later partner, at Holme Roberts & Owen. In 1993 he established the Conservation Resource Center, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping communities and governmental entities deal with matters involving land conservation. Working in Colorado, he established the nation’s first functioning exchange for transferring Conservation Tax Credits, and has facilitated the transfer of nearly 1,500 credits. In 2002, he established a similar program for transferring Conservation Tax Credits in Virginia. He is an adjunct Professor or Law at University of Denver Law School, teaching courses in Land Conservation Law.

The Conservation Resource Center’s Tax Credit Exchange established the nation’s first market for transferring conservation tax credits. It remains the most successful tax credit program in Colorado, having transferred more than all other facilitators combined.

For five years, the Tax Credit Exchange has sold every qualified credit registered with the program. It continues to have the largest pool of credit buyers in the state.
