Northwest Colorado Outdoor Stewardship Summit in Grand Junction

 Registration is closed for this event
Help shape the future of outdoor stewardship in Colorado. We are seeking your input as we build a stronger and more sustainable network of outdoor stewardship organizations to better meet the increased challenges we face in Colorado. Find out more about how local organizations and land managers can leverage the Colorado Outdoor Stewardship Coalition’s new Statewide Stewardship Initiative to promote effective volunteer engagement in the important work of protecting Colorado’s public lands, including discussion on the potential to secure hundreds of thousands of dollars in new grant funding as part of this initiative, so please join us.

On July 19, the Tamarisk Coalition and the Colorado Outdoor Stewardship Coalition will be hosting an important local meeting of outdoor stewardship organizations and land managers in Grand Junction  — and I’d like to see you there! 

This will be your best opportunity learn about and —​ more importantly — ​help shape this ambitious project​. With your feedback, we can lay the foundation for ​a game-changing new approach to volunteer conservation efforts. 

To improve the management and care of our state's precious public lands, the Statewide Stewardship Initiative will: 

  • Create ​a ​statewide Outdoor Stewardship Organization (OSO) asset database for outdoor stewardship organizations, and accessible by land managers;
  • Establish ​​a set of standards that define OSO best practices; 
  • Defin​​e ​​uniform​ ​stewardship metrics​ ​and organizational data reporting​ ​standards to improve project impact evaluation​; and
  • Plan three large-scale stewardship demonstration projects​ ​to serve as models for effective land stewardship projects within the state and across the country. 

​On behalf of everyone in the Tamarisk Coalition and the Colorado Outdoor Stewardship Coalition, thanks for all of your work — and we look forward to seeing you on July 19!
