PPORA champions the outdoors, strengthens and unites the outdoor community, and collaboratively plans for the future. We are the big tent convener! We bring outdoor entities together to solve problems and ensure that you continue to have enjoyable, plentiful, diverse outdoor experiences in the Pikes Peak region. PPORA also advocates for good policy, educates on outdoor ethics, supports stewardship efforts, and more!
Because the outdoors matters to us! And we know it matters to you and to our local communities. We work together to ensure that you and future generations continue to enjoy and care for our region’s amazing natural and recreational assets. The pandemic has put an exclamation point on what we already knew: time spent outdoors makes us happier and healthier people and communities!
We need volunteers or in-kind help with grant writing, social media, video development, website content updating, event coordination, and graphic design work for projects.
47+ local outdoor organizations have participated in PPORA Advisory Council meetings in 2021 – collaborating to ensure the outdoor experiences you enjoy continue!
“PPORA has done a terrific job of getting all the right people to the table to discuss these issues and act accordingly. The Pikes Peak region is fortunate to have such a positive organization advocating for the outdoor recreation industry.” — Jeff M., Supporter
