In Colorado, we are fortunate to have one of the most diverse natural landscapes in the country. From the fields of the Eastern Plains to the peaks of the Continental Divide to the red rock canyons of the West Slope, our public lands support Colorado's special way of life. Earth Day is an opportunity to celebrate our state's natural beauty and recommit ourselves to safeguarding it for future generations.
