Colorado Public Lands Day
Saturday, May 20

In May 2016, the Colorado General Assembly passed a bill establishing the third Saturday in May as "Colorado Public Lands Day".  The bill passed with bipartisan support and was signed into law by Governor Hickenlooper. The purpose of this new holiday is to celebrate the significant contributions that national, state, and local public lands within Colorado make to wildlife, outdoor recreation, the econo​my, and to Coloradans’ quality of life. Colorado Parks & Wildlife is proud to be to be an active participant in this event and has planned a variety of programs and special events at many of our state parks. Please plan to join us for one of these scheduled activities or simply visit one of our 41 state parks​ and get outside on this special day! Find an event ​near you​!
