In the past few years, we’ve brought you dynamic speakers like author Pam Houston, stunning photography from David Showalter, and even the music of Chuck Leavell. To keep us all safe and healthy, we’ve opted not to have an in-person Q for Conservation this year. But to keep Colorado’s open spaces safe and healthy, we need your support more than ever.
COL has conserved the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory (RMBL) 270-acre research site! RMBL is one of the largest, oldest, and most productive sites for field research on earth. It will now remain so as a protected living laboratory, centered in the Town of Gothic, just north of Crested Butte. Photo provided by RMBL.
COL staff working remotely
Currently, the physical offices of Colorado Open Lands are temporarily closed, and our staff is working remotely in the interest of public health and safety. We will update you here as things change. Our office phone extensions are being forwarded, and emails and voicemails are being checked regularly, so please contact the COL staff as you would normally, or you can use the general contact form. Please stay safe and healthy out there.
It’s no secret that Colorado residents and visitors love their outdoor experiences. Access for all ages and ability levels to open space contributes to our health, both physical, mental, and emotional.
