Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of Colorado Public Lands Day

In May 2016, Colorado became the first state in the nation to establish a state holiday for our public lands. The third Saturday in May is now recognized as Colorado Public Lands Day, a day to celebrate how our public lands are central to our economy and our quality of life.

The adoption of the holiday was championed by Sen. Kerry Donovan, D-Vail to encourage Coloradans to learn about and appreciate the abundance of outdoor opportunities and stewardship responsibilities.
