Colorado Public Lands Day

May 16

We received a wonderful selection of photos for our "Bring the Wild Inside" Photo Contest in honor of Colorado Public Lands Day. We loved them all! Congratulations to the winner, Sarah Emery (an intern at COWPL) for her photo titled "Camping season so far and we’ve found some wonderful views from the yard". And thank you to all the entrants.

We wish everyone a happy Colorado Public Lands Day. Enjoy the opportunity to celebrate responsibly outside.

Bring The Wild Inside - Photo Contest

Deadline May 11, 2020

To celebrate Colorado Public Lands Day, email us a photo taken inside your home or outside in your yard of how you love to use your public lands for the chance to win a gift certificate! Entries are due by May 11th and the winners will be announced on our website on Colorado Public Lands Day, Saturday May 16, 2020.

Get creative, and please be mindful of your fellow public lands users by respecting the state’s coronavirus guidelines.

Be Smart On Our Public Lands

We wish you all good health. Please continue to recreate responsibly outdoors, staying near home and following local guidelines. When indoors, use the media to be an advocate for your public lands. For more information, see COWPL’s letter to the editor, a collaboration with eight other organizations.
