We save Central Colorado’s wild places by defending wildlands that provide refuge for wildlife and biodiversity as the climate changes. We influence decision-making about public lands, bringing protection to hundreds of thousands of acres. We ensure that future generations can enjoy wildlife and natural wonders in our region. We lead hikes that teach about our public lands and how everyone can protect those lands.
We defend biodiversity and roadless areas. Public lands are threatened by climate change and activities that harm the land, water, and native species. We work to reduce those threats and connect citizens to special wild places through hikes, restoration projects, and political action. Our volunteers improve important habitat and close illegal motorized routes so that wildlife can thrive in quiet reconnected places.
You can help by speaking up to public officials in defense of wildlands. You can provide money, or serve as a volunteer for habitat restoration projects, videographer or fundraiser.
Two-thirds of Coloradans consider themselves to be conservationists, and 82% support a national goal of conserving 30 percent of America’s lands and waters by 2030.
