RESPECT In The Outdoors

A collaborative community campaign to encourage those enjoying outdoor recreation in the Pikes Peak region to respect both the resource and one another.

Through projects like The APEX, Pikes Peak Outdoor Recreation Alliance, serves to strengthen the outdoor recreation industry for the Pikes Peak region through leadership and collaboration. Significant growth in outdoor recreation use in the Pikes Peak region and along with the rest of the Colorado front range over the past several years has prompted PPORA to bring land managers, industry, and community partners together to focus on education and awareness to help minimize these impacts through a collaborative campaign, the central focus of which is Leave No Trace principles. A Campaign Toolkit serves as a resource for anyone who wants to share the messaging and encourage residents and visitors to recreate respectfully and responsibly and includes videos, social posts, images, leaders available for interviews, and much more!
