CELEBRATING COLORADO’S PUBLIC LANDS FROM A DISTANCE
Colorado Public Lands Day in 2020
In May 2016, Colorado became the first state in the nation to establish a state holiday for our public lands. Colorado Public Lands Day is a day to celebrate how our public lands are central to our economy and our quality of life. During this challenging time, the COVID-19 crisis is having a profound impact on Colorado’s communities and outdoor recreation economy. We must adapt and celebrate public lands while remaining socially distant. This year, Public Lands Day activities will highlight art, film, educational webinars, and community conversations to offer a variety of ways that Coloradans can meaningfully connect with one another as well as our precious lands and waters.
While Coloradans can and should continue to enjoy our public lands during the COVID-19 pandemic, please remember to do so responsibly. Please follow the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment recommendations in order to protect yourself and those around you.
