The final 2014 Colorado Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP) has been released. Stewarship has been incorporated into the Plan. CWF participated in the stakeholder discussions last year as the plan evolved, and early this year, CWF made comments to the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commmission.
The report creates five priority categories for outdoor recreation activity areas: Outdoor Recreation Education, Funding and Financial Sustainability, Healthy Lifestyles and Communities, Integration of Outdoor Recreation Interests, and Stewardship. The report then identifies recommended actions. "SCORP is more than a planning document," said Bob Broscheid, Directorof Colorado Parks and Wildlife. "It provides a framework of practices and partnerships that will enable future generations to continue to enjoy and benefit from Colorado's amazing outdoor recreation resources. We encourage all entities that appreciate Colorado’s outdoor recreation heritage to explore and utilize the SCORP to support their outdoor planning acitivites into the future."
