The Center’s state and regional tourism partnerships work to provide a consistent message of sustainable tourism to visitors in states and communities across the country. Tourism provides an excellent framework to teach and share Leave No Trace and to expand its sphere of influence. Partnerships state and regional tourism offices provide unique opportunities to expose outdoor visitors to Leave No Trace first while planning their visits and then at specific touch-points all throughout their trip.


Colorado Tourism Office

In 2017, Colorado’s Tourism Office (CTO) became the first state in the nation to partner with Leave No Trace. The Center and CTO joined forces to create Colorado-tailored Leave No Trace educational messages and an Are You Colorado Ready campaign to educate both in state and out of state travelers about protecting Colorado’s precious natural resources. Through this partnership CTO and the Center have built a coalition of businesses and organizations that are working together to promote stewardship of Colorado’s outdoors.

Let’s protect and enjoy our natural world together
