National Parks Conservation Association
Protecting and enhancing America’s National Parks for present and future generations.
The Denver office focuses on the nine national park units within the Colorado River Basin including Rocky Mountain National Park, Dinosaur National Monument, Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, Curecanti National Recreation Area, Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, Grand Canyon National Park, and Lake Mead National Recreation Area.
The program is a fact-based advocacy and engagement program that works with a variety of stakeholders across the basin states in water policy discussions centered on the future of Colorado River management. Through this expanding collaboration, they seek to reinforce the need to view national park units affected by river management decisions as part of larger landscapes and ecosystems that require collaboration among disparate stakeholders. They believe that by highlighting the profound impact river management has on our national parks —places that are both beloved for their beauty and valued for their economic leverage— they can engage a diverse, non-traditional network of voices who will advocate for sustained healthy river flows in the Colorado River.
