It just isn’t Colorado without parks and wildlife.

This is our chance to secure long-term funding for hunting and fishing in Colorado and we NEED YOUR HELP!

Colorado’s wildlife and outdoor spaces are among our most valuable and valued resources. They enhance our quality of life, bring us prosperity and represent our western heritage. Coloradans depend on CPW to deliver on its mission and ensure future generations have access to the quality hunting, fishing and parks recreational opportunities available today. SB18-143 will enable CPW to do even more for Coloradoans, such as:

1. Invest more in critical programs like hunter education and Fishing is Fun;

2. Expand access for hunters and anglers by renewing high-priority leases and access programs on private land;

3. Repair CPW’s aging dams and reservoir infrastructure to keep them open for fishing;

4. Modernize hatcheries to increase the number of fish stocked in those Colorado waters that can’t support robust wild populations.

CPW works hard to be efficient with our dollars— they rely on user fees, NOT general fund tax dollars. However, the fees have not kept pace with rising operational costs as inflation increased almost 30 percent.

By taking a minute today to tell our leaders that we value our public lands, we can help ensure that they will be here in the future.

Click the action button below to tell your representative that it’s a YES on SB18-143 from you.
