Conservation Colorado is a grassroots statewide organization working to protect Colorado’s air, land, water, and people. We have a long and successful history of collaborating on the key environmental issues of the day and establishing strategic partnerships to find success on a variety of levels, including:
• Ensuring that more than three million acres of wilderness will stay forever wild.
• Setting a statewide renewable energy standard, then increasing it to 30 percent and making it one of the strongest in the nation.
• Working to minimize impacts from oil and gas drilling by updating public health, drinking water and wildlife protections in 2008 and continuing to push for further reforms.
• Passing more than 130 different conservation bills at the state legislature in the past six years on a host of environmental issues ranging from water efficiency to air quality to energy efficiency to transit.
These pressing priorities require us to engage Colorado citizens and policy makers in
