Who we are
Environment Colorado is a citizen-based environmental advocacy organization and a project of Environment America. Our professional staff combines independent research, practical ideas and tough-minded advocacy to overcome the opposition of powerful special interests and win real results for Colorado's environment. Environment Colorado draws on 30 years of success in tackling our state's top environmental problems.
Whether it’s exploring Rocky Mountain National Park, hiking Dolores Canyon, or enjoying a special place closer to home, Colorado’s natural wonders—and amazing places across the country—enrich our lives in countless ways. Yet the places we love and the values we share are too often threatened.

What We Do
We research the issues and educate the public about what’s at stake. Through our reports, news conferences and interviews with reporters, we help the media cover environmental issues in ways that make sense. Our canvassers meet citizens where they are — starting conversations in public places or going to door-to-door — explaining our mission while raising awareness and funds for environmental protection.
When decisions are being made about our environment, our elected officials hear plenty from the oil companies, developers and other powerful interests. We speak up for our environment, making our case to public officials and helping you make your voice heard when it matters most. From anglers to white-water enthusiasts, clergy to scientists, families to business owners, we all have a stake in a cleaner, healthier future.

Putting your support to work
Keep the Clean Water Act working. Thanks to your action and support, President Obama restored Clean Water Act protections for drinking water sources used by 1 in 3 Americans. But within hours, polluters unleashed a flood of lawsuits, putting on hold the new protections we just won for thousands of waterways and wetlands across the country. Your support is necessary to keep the Clean Water Act working for all our waters.
Reduce global warming pollution. You helped win the single largest step the United States has ever taken to fight climate change! The Clean Power Plan will place the first-ever limits on global warming pollution from dirty power plants. But polluters and climate-deniers have fought the plan every step of the way, and aren’t giving up now. Neither are we — and your support will help ensure congressional leaders don’t kill the Clean Power Plan before it has a chance to work.
Help America go solar. More of us are going solar, meeting our energy needs in a way that’s clean, local and independent. But dirty energy companies keep putting up new roadblocks. Help advocate for more pro-solar policies, and put us on the road to 100% clean energy.
