Who we are

Environment Colorado is a citizen-based environmental advocacy organization and a project of Environment America. Our professional staff combines independent research, practical ideas and tough-minded advocacy to overcome the opposition of powerful special interests and win real results for Colorado's environment. Environment Colorado draws on 30 years of success in tackling our state's top environmental problems.

Whether it’s exploring Rocky Mountain National Park, hiking Dolores Canyon, or enjoying a special place closer to home, Colorado’s natural wonders—and amazing places across the country—enrich our lives in countless ways. Yet the places we love and the values we share are too often threatened.

OUR STAFF

What we do

Funded by supporters like you, we research the challenges confronting our environment and educate the public about what’s at stake. Through our research reports, news conferences, interviews with reporters, op-ed pieces, letters to the editor and more, we raise awareness of environmental issues and promote sensible solutions. Our canvassers meet people where they are — in public places or door to door — raising awareness, recruiting new supporters and activists, and securing funds to support our work.

We make the case for our environment and help people like you make an impact — through petitions, emails, letters, phone calls and more, all delivered to the right people just when it matters most.
