Website: PikesPeakOutdoors.org

PPORA launched www.pikespeakoutdoors.org in 2018 as a “go to” resource to find places to recreate, gear to rent/buy, guides and tours, groups and meet-ups, events, volunteer opportunities, and to educate the public on practicing good stewardship. Collaborations, development, and marketing of the website continue to make it a better resource for the community and better known.

Population(s) Served

We are members of Leave No Trace and Care for Colorado, as well as Recreate Responsibly Colorado. We incorporated Leave No Trace principles throughout PikesPeakOutdoors.org, highlight these principles in the Family Adventure Guide, and run an ongoing social media stewardship education campaign.

PPORA launched a Family Adventure Guide to the Pikes Peak Region last summer to encourage kids and families to get outdoors and to make planning easy. The guide is both digital and in print and provides fun activities, highlights 30 great family-friendly outdoor places to explore, sample itineraries, outdoor ethics, and much more. A Kids Adventure Club with a pika as the mascot was launched with the guide to make outdoor adventures fun for kids and includes a pledge to CARE, incorporating stewardship.
