Last year Colorado became the first state in the nation to designate a statewide holiday that recognizes the many benefits provided by our parks, forests, and other public lands.
In an effort to help establish this as a tradition for years to come, Conservation Colorado is working to ensure community leaders, businesses, government agencies, grassroots organizations, etc. are aware of this day and are able leverage it toward achieving their own goals, while also making the inaugural Colorado Public Lands Day (Saturday, May 20th) a smashing success.
To help contextualize the opportunity below is a list of suggested ways your organization might participate:
· Organize guided hikes
· Host a stewardship project
· Encourage municipalities and/or agency partners to organize free outdoor activities
· Run a social media campaign
· Partner with a guide shop to host free classes (fishing, rock climbing, mountain biking, etc).
· Have a happy hour
· Host a fundraiser
· Invite a guest speaker to an event
Thanks for your interest, and I look forward to working with you in establishing a tradition that will last for generations to come.
