Future of Conservation & Outdoor Recreation

​​​​​​The Future of Hunting, Fishing and Outdoor Recreation in Colorado​​

Last year, House Bill 17-1321 Parks and Wildlife Financial Sustainability was introduced, which would have helped CPW achieve and maintain financial sustainability. While HB 17-1321 did not pass, it was encouraging to see how the bill increased public awareness of CPW's financial needs and generated new conversations about the future of parks, wildlife, and outdoor recreation in Colorado.

Based on that experience and the feedback we heard from the public, we have refined our approach for 2018. We encourage your attendance at public meetings occurring across the state​ discussing our future. ​Here's an early look at ideas we have that we'd like your thoughts on.​


Public Comments

As we continue developing solutions, CPW invites the public to provide feedback on our plans to fund the future of wildlife management and outdoor recreation in Colorado​.
