How will your organization stay relevant amidst Colorado's changing demographics and growing population?

​The Partners in the Outdoors conference brings together an assembly of stakeholders engaged in the future of Colorado's outdoors and recreational opportunities. The conference's purpose is to provide a platform to promote stakeholder initiatives that link a coalition of organizations, agencies, schools, ​​and communities together.​ This year we will explore how to best balance outdoor recreation and sustainable wildlife management in Colorado amidst the statewide demographic and population growth trends. 

Conference attendees are dedicated to fostering a strong stewardship ethic throughout Colorado communities, creating a bond to ensure awareness and respect for natural resources, growth of business, and promoting responsible outdoor recreation. Through our collective work and effective partnerships, we invest in improving the quality of life for all Coloradans. ​

Statewide Partner Program Mapping​

During the Partners in the Outdoors Conference a partners map was created that highlighted the many different people at the conference and what they could provide in a potential partnership.

This tool was created to help promote partnership with those at the conference by seeing each others​ skills and backgrounds. This helped to create strong partnerships at the conference and narrow down potential partnerships. View the 2015 Statewide Partner Program Map
