We save Central Colorado’s wild places by defending wildlands that provide refuge for wildlife and biodiversity as the climate changes. We influence decision-making about public lands bringing protection to hundreds of thousands of acres. We ensure that future generations can enjoy wildlife and natural wonders in our region. We lead hikes that teach about our public lands and how everyone can protect those lands.
We defend biodiversity and roadless areas. Public lands are threatened by climate change and activities that harm the land, water, and native species. We work to reduce those threats and to connect citizens to special wild places through hikes, restoration projects, and political action. Our volunteers improve habitat and close illegal motorized routes so that wildlife can thrive in quiet reconnected places.
We need you to speak up to public officials in defense of wildlands. We need money, volunteers and coordinators for habitat restoration projects, videographers, and fund-raisers.
Wild Connections is celebrating our 25th anniversary! Together, we can actively guard the public lands and wildlife that we all cherish for 25 more years.
“Our remaining wildlands are like the last patches of mountain snow, melting so slowly, drip by drip, that we fail to notice what we are losing. By mapping these places, Wild Connections is stopping the melt. Hope persists. And for that I am grateful.” — Dave, volunteer who hiked and mapped roadless areas
