Care for Colorado Principles is a collaboration of the Colorado Tourism Office (CTO) and the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics to inspire both Colorado residents and visitors to protect Colorado’s special places.
The seven principles are a direct response to the concerns many have expressed about visitor impacts on the places they love. Our goal is to share the Care for Colorado Principles with travelers, empowering them to protect the very qualities that attracted them to visit Colorado.

This message for Colorado travelers was developed in a partnership between the Colorado Tourism Office and Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics. Remember to know before you go, lead with kindness and care, respect the beautiful landscape and leave it as you found it. Please share this information to reduce visitor impacts on Colorado!
