Colorado Tourism Office
The Colorado Tourism Office (CTO) and the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor ethics joined forces in 2017 to create and share a responsible tourism message to people traveling throughout the state of Colorado. CTO and the Center worked together to create the Care for Colorado Leave No Trace Principles and Are You Colo-Ready messaging to inspire both in and out of state visitors to protect the beautiful landscapes and irreplaceable cultural and historic resources that make Colorado such a sought-after destination.
Care for Colorado Coalition
Leave No Trace and the Colorado Office of Tourism have joined as Founding Partners in establishing the Care for Colorado Coalition. This coalition is made up of a variety of associations, businesses, and organizations in Colorado that are dedicated to sharing messages and education aimed at encouraging visitors to be good stewards of the places they visit in Colorado.
The following entities have demonstrated a strong commitment to the recognition and adoption of stewardship practices joining the coalition as Stewardship Partners. These partners are dedicated to ensuring that their members are educating their various audiences about Leave No Trace practices through the promotion of Care for Colorado messaging.
