Partners in the Outdoors Conference

​April 2​7-29, 2020 | Vail, CO​

Join the Partners in the Outdoors community as we explore the complicated relationship between conservation and recreation in our state. We’ll  ask ourselves, “How can we cultivate common ground to ensure a sustainable future for Colorado’s outdoors?”

​Announcement: Partners Conference COVID-19 Postponement

In light of the rapidly evolving updates on COVID-19, Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW), under the guidance of the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), is announcing the postponement of the 2020 Partners in the Outdoors Conference. 

While we were very excited about the content we had planned for next month’s conference, we also understand the responsibility we have to keep the people of our state safe and to minimize any potential contribution to the spread of COVID-19. 

At this time, we are exploring our options and kindly ask that you hold off on requesting refunds while we work through the myriad of details this unprecedented situation is presenting. 

We hope to announce updated plans in the near future and thank you in advance for your patience.

If you have any questions, please contact CPW’s Partners Program at

Our conference provides opportunities for:

  • Networking and Collaboration
  • Partner Recognition
  • Professional Development
  • Grant Funding

In 2020, we will continue our efforts to advance Colorado's Outdoor Principles​ as we provide the outdoor conservation and recreation community in Colorado the opportunity to build common ground by forging new collaborations with diverse stakeholders and voices. We'll learn about key issues in the industry and generate innovative ideas and solutions supported by all parties. We'll also learn how to implement best practices for partnering so we can advance the priorities identified in Colorado's Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP). The SCORP supports our State Wildlife Action Plan and CPW's Strategic Plan.
