America’s recreation destination
Coloradans and Americans alike love Colorado’s public lands. Snow-capped mountain peaks, alpine forests, wildflower valleys and rushing rivers draw millions of people to the state each year to enjoy powdery slopes, rugged trails, whitewater rapids and Blue Ribbon trout streams.
Colorado’s outdoor offerings benefit the state by raising the quality of life and bringing tourism dollars. But all this love for public lands, combined with one of the fastest growing populations in the country, puts pressure on Colorado’s lands and waterways already dealing with the effects of climate change, wildfires, and oil, gas and coal development. Coloradans cherish the state’s wild places, but more work needs to be done to offer lasting protections and wise management decisions to the state’s most precious wild lands.
