In the Mission Statement of Colorado State Parks, “the stewardship of Colorado’s natural resources” is one of the highest priorities. State Parks protects and conserves natural resources throughout the state through two distinct programs. Please select your area of interest below:
Parks Resource Stewardship Section
The Parks Resource Stewardship Section is devoted to assisting park staff with biological sustainability, threatened and endangered species compliance, forest management, treatment of noxious weeds and GIS mapping.
Colorado Natural Areas Program
The Colorado Natural Areas Program identifies, designates and protects Colorado’s most significant natural features. Through cooperative land management agreements, we protect the best geologic formations, paleontologic localities, rare plant and animal habitat and unique plant communities in Colorado.
