CPW’s 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. The development of this strategic plan serves as a guide to help us achieve our mission.
CPW seeks to serve all those who enjoy Colorado’s wildlife, state parks and outdoor recreation opportunities. This strategic plan aims to improve CPW’s connection, responsiveness and service to those constituents, as well as guide proper management of the natural resources entrusted to the agency.

CPW's work contributes approximately $6 billion in total economic impact annually throughout Colorado.
