Partners in the Outdoors Conference
The Partners in the Outdoors Conference is Colorado's foremost opportunity to cultivate common ground, explore best practices of partnering, and design collaborative solutions with diverse voices and stakeholders to conserve Colorado's outdoor heritage. Our annual conference has quickly become one of the signature events in Colorado bringing together organizations, agencies, schools, ​​businesses ​and communities engaged in the future of Colorado's conservation and outdoor recreational opportunities. 

2022 Partners Conference

We are pleased to announce that we plan to return to an in-person event and host our annual conference from April 18-20, 2022 at the Vail Marriott Mountain Resort.

Call for Session Proposals

Conference sessions are 1 hour and 15 minutes long and are scheduled for either Tuesday, April 19th or Wednesday morning, April 20th, 2022. 

This year's conference theme and guiding question will be: 

How do we ensure that both outdoor recreation and conservation thrive amidst a changing Colorado?

We will continue to frame our conference around the priority areas identified in our Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP) and have identified the following subthemes for this year's conference: 

  • Access and Opportunity: How can we reimagine our public lands to be managed more sustainably and be inclusive of all people?
  • Stewardship: How do we continue to cultivate a stewardship ethic within all who connect with Colorado's outdoors?
  • Land, Water, Wildlife Conservation: How will we advance the conservation of habitats to ensure our valued wildlife species flourish amidst a changing Colorado?
  • Funding the Future: How can we secure sufficient funding to protect and manage our vast natural resources and wrecreational opportunities? 
Deadline to submit a proposal is December 17th. 


Our conference provides opportunities for:

  • Networking and Collaboration
  • Partner Recognition
