Partners in the Outdoors Conference

Colorado Parks and Wildlife, with the support of our Partners in the Outdoors, provide an opportunity for promoting strong initiatives that link a coalition of organizations, agencies, schools and communities. 

The 4th Annual Partners in the Outdoors Conference is a platform for conversation and planning, professional development and workshops to strengthen the statewide efforts of all partners involved.

The 2017 conference will bring together an assembly of stakeholders in the future of Colorado’s outdoors and recreational opportunities. Attendees at the conference are dedicated to fostering a strong conservation ethic throughout Colorado communities, creating a bond to ensure awareness and respect for natural resources and outdoor recreation.
