Public Lands Partnership
Who We Are
The Public Lands Partnership is one of the longest operating Natural Resource Collaborative in the State of Colorado striving to be a catalyst, promoting public education and awareness of economic and environmental issues related to public lands. The PLP provides local public forums for airing different sides of natural resource issues. Over the years PLP has carefully identified public land projects that would benefit from collaborative efforts that enhance and help maintain diverse, healthy communities.
Goals and objectives:
- To influence the management of public lands in ways that enhance and help maintain diverse, healthy and viable communities, ecologies and economies.
- To demonstrate different ecologically and economically sustainable approaches that contribute to the health and bio-diversity of public lands in the area.
- To better define and strengthen opportunities for local involvement in public lands issues and processes.
One of the first of its kind in the West, the Public Lands Partnership (PLP) came together in 1993 as a loose organization of people, businesses, local governments, and land management agencies. Then, as now, this diverse group strives to create civic discussion and local action on natural resource issues that affect our economy, ecology, and sense of place. The PLP strives to be a catalyst, promoting public education and awareness of economic and environmental issues related to public lands, and to provide a local forum for airing different sides of natural resource issues.
