The CORE Act
The Colorado Outdoor Recreation and Economy (CORE) Act would protect over 400,000 acres of public lands, waterways, and outdoor recreation opportunities in Colorado, including some of the Continental Divide’s most stunning landscapes. The Continental Divide Trail passes through the proposed Tenmile Recreation Management Area as well as the Camp Hale National Historic Landscape, a brand new public lands designation that combines the mission of educating visitors with that of preserving terrain for outdoor recreation and ecological integrity.

In addition to the more than 45,000 acres surrounding the CDT in the above areas, the CORE Act would also protect hundreds of thousands of acres in the San Juan Mountains, the Thompson Divide, and the Curecanti National Recreation Area. The legislation was created by Coloradans in more than a decade of grassroots efforts and extensive collaboration and compromise, and the CDTC strongly supports the protections it offers to the CDT.

An Example of What You Could Say
“As a Coloradan and supporter of our state’s incredible outdoor heritage, I’m writing to urge you to support the CORE Act. Outdoor recreation is an essential part of the Colorado way of life, and a huge driver of our state’s economy. The CORE Act would help protect our ecosystems, access, and unique places ranging from Camp Hale to the Continental Divide Trail to three of our famous fourteeners. I’m joining with a diverse group of Coloradans in supporting the CORE Act and the collaborative spirit in which is was written. As your constituent, I’m counting on you to join us, too, and lead the way to protect Colorado’s public lands for future generations to enjoy.”
