About Environment Colorado
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
- Clean Water for America. Together, we went toe-to-toe with polluters and fought hard to restore Clean Water Act protections to nearly 2 million miles of streams across the country. And in May, President Obama did just that by closing decade-old loopholes in the Clean Water Act that left the drinking water sources for one in three Americans at risk of pollution.
- Global Warming Solutions. The president is moving forward to limit our country’s #1 source of global warming emissions: carbon pollution from dirty power plants. Together with our allies, we delivered 8 million public comments in favor of President Obama’s Clean Power Plan, and we’re working to stop congressional leaders from killing the rule.
- Go Solar. Isn’t it time to leave dirty energy behind? Solar power has tripled in the United States in just a few years, thanks in part to policies you’ve supported. Let’s keep solar power growing strong, and urge our leaders to make commitments that will help put us on the road to 100% clean energy.
