The Pikes Peak region, along with the rest of the Front Range, has experienced significant growth in outdoor recreation use, with a number of new users over the past few years which has only been magnified as a result of the pandemic. The great news is that so many are experiencing the tremendous benefits to their health and well-being by spending time outdoors and our communities are enjoying the economic benefits of a strong outdoor economy. The bad news is that this increased volume and some poor outdoor ethics is diminishing the experiences of all users and having negative impacts to our natural and recreational resources.
PPORA is bringing land managers, industry, and community partners together to focus on education and awareness to help minimize these impacts through a collaborative campaign kicked off this Spring.
Join the Campaign! The Resource Toolkit below is available for anyone who wants to help share the messaging and encourage our residents and visitors to show greater respect for the resource and one another. It includes videos, social posts, images, and more!
The central focus is RESPECT, expressed through Leave No Trace principles and we are bringing focus to each one as a weekly theme. See the calendar below for weeks and themes and click on the weekly images to access resources specific to that theme.
Let's make a difference this season because we are STRONGER TOGETHER!
