Overview

The Colorado Natural Areas Program operating under Colorado Parks and Wildlife, works with interested landowners and dedicated volunteers, to help conserve Colorado's best places well into the future.

To date, more than 150 rare, threatened or endangered species and communities are monitored and cooperatively protected at 89 designated sites in Colorado, with more in the works.

Natural areas are found on public or private land and are designated through land management agreements with landowners. The wilderness at Colorado State Parks is located all around you and thanks to the Colorado Natural Areas Program, will be for years to come.

In addition, across the state, CPW manages more than 348 State Wildlife Areas, totaling more than 684,252 acres. In addition, CPW leases approximately 550,000 acres of State Trust Lands, not only protecting wildlife habitat but also providing the public with opportunities to hunt, fish and watch wildlife.
