CPW’s mission is to perpetuate the wildlife resources of the state, to provide a quality state parks system, and to provide enjoyable and sustainable outdoor recreation opportunities that educate and inspire current and future generations to serve as active stewards of Colorado’s natural resources.
Guided by our conservation principles, this mission encompasses all of CPW’s work -- from managing Colorado’s 960 species of wildlife to its more than
state parks and more than 350
wildlife areas covering approximately 900,000 acres, as well as management of
motorized and non-motorized trails,
boating and outdoor education.
The opportunities offered by Colorado’s outdoors are almost endless but need to be carefully managed in order to protect our natural resources both now and for future generations.
