Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) is embarking on a strategic planning process to guide CPW's efforts into the future. This new strategic plan will set a high level vision, overarching goals, and strategies for Colorado's state parks, wildlife and outdoor recreation resources. Through this process, CPW is striving to develop a strategic direction that is shared with citizens of Colorado, individuals who utilize CPW services, the Parks and Wildlife Commission and CPW's dedicated staff.
This plan will reflect what CPW hears from stakeholders, the Commission, the public and staff during the planning process as well as build upon recent planning and research efforts. In order to be successful, CPW is reaching out to people across the state and encouraging participation in this planning effort. Please take time to attend one of our meetings and/or fill out a comment form.
Please give us your input using our online public comment form. Also available in Spanish.
