Roxborough State Park with Conference Graphic

The Partners in the Outdoors Conference brings together stakeholders engaged in the future of Colorado's conservation and recreational opportunities.  Our conference provides a platform to network, collaborate, and create initiatives that connect coalitions of organizations, agencies, schools, ​​and communities.​ At this one-of-a-kind conference, we work together to advance outdoor recreation, education and conservation.


While benefitting from professional development, partner recognition, and grant funding opportunities, conference attendees commit to fostering a strong stewardship ethic throughout Colorado. Together, we promote awareness and respect for natural resources, sustainable growth of businesses, and responsible hunting, fishing and outdoor recreation. Through our collective work and effective partnerships, we invest in improving the quality of life for all Coloradans. ​


Join us in May 20​18 to be a part of the conversation.​
