2023 Colorado Public Lands Day event recap

WHY ATTEND THIS EVENT

The Impact

Public lands are vital to our Colorado way of life; they provide opportunities for adventure and solace, support our local communities, are the foundation of our outdoor recreation economy, and are critical to sustain healthy wildlife populations. While support for public lands is strong, the growing demands on our shared open spaces and the associated impacts on wildlife and habitat are mounting. 

The weekend will provide the opportunity for public land champions, user groups, and recreation-based businesses to build relationships while engaging in meaningful, boots-on-the-ground stewardship; removing upwards of 5 miles of barbed wire fence to improve habitat connectivity for wildlife.
