#CareForColorado Week: Leave It As You Find It

Coloradans are incredibly lucky to live in a state with endless outdoor opportunities, but with that comes a responsibility to educate ourselves about the impacts of our outdoor recreation.

#CareForColorado week Day 3

To ensure Colorado remains the outdoor oasis that it is for generations to come, we all have to work together. Here are just a few ways you can keep the Colorado outdoors beautiful and pristine for those exploring in your wake.

✅ Any of our 750 different species of wildflowers will live forever in a photo. Snap away, but only with a camera.
✅ Treat all living things with respect. Carving or hacking plants and trees may kill or disfigure them.
✅ Leave plants, rocks and historical items as you find them so others experience the joy of discovery.
✅ When taking a skiing or snowshoeing hut trip, leave your hut better than you found it. Be considerate of other users and follow the instructions.
