Colorado Division of Wildlifewww.wildlife.state.co.us

“Our Mission is to perpetuate the wildlife resources of the state, to provide a quality state parks system, and to provide enjoyable and sustainable outdoor recreation opportunities that educate and inspire current and future generations to serve as active stewards of Colorado's natural resources.”

Colorado Wildlife Federationwww.coloradowildlife.org

“The Colorado Wildlife Federation is Colorado’s oldest and most effective wildlife conservation organization. We are advocates for our state’s wildlife. Our membership includes hunters, anglers and wildlife viewers who believe in the stewardship of a wildlife population that defines our state heritage and traditions. The unprecedented energy development that is changing our Rocky Mountain landscape threatens iconic native species such as mule deer, sage grouse and Colorado River cutthroat trout. These impacts have been documented by respected wildlife biologists, including CWF members. As Coloradans and Americans, we recognize the need for responsible energy development. Yet we also know that energy development need not, and must not, jeopardize our remarkable wildlife resource and the sustainable economy that depend on healthy populations and habitats. The Colorado Wildlife Federation focuses on ensuring that this natural bounty be sustained. Our mission is to serve as determined stewards of our state’s wildlife and the winter range, migration corridors, reproduction areas and waterways they depend on to survive. We will not shy away from this formidable challenge. As advocates for wildlife, we will demand that the needs of wildlife be fully considered and addressed before energy development begins, not as an afterthought. Colorado’s wildlife is worth sustaining. As an organization, we intended to assure our wildlife heritage is handed down for generations to come.”

U.S. National Park Service http://www.nps.gov/index.htm

“Since 1916, the American people have entrusted the National Park Service with the care of their national parks. With the help of volunteers and park partners, we are proud to safeguard these more than 400 places and to share their stories with more than 275 million visitors every year. But our work doesn't stop there. We are proud that tribes, local governments, nonprofit organizations, businesses, and individual citizens ask for our help in revitalizing their communities, preserving local history, celebrating local heritage, and creating close to home opportunities for kids and families to get outside, be active, and have fun. Taking care of the national parks and helping Americans take care of their communities is a job we love, and we need-and welcome-your help and support.”
