The first round of SCCORR Listening Sessions are complete.

Eight Listening Sessions (LS) were conducted in five southwest Colorado towns during February and March, 2024: Bayfield, Durango, Ignacio, Pagosa Springs, and Silverton. Each LS relied on five "user groups" as a focus for the public to provide their input on opportunities and challenges facing conservation and outdoor recreation in southwest Colorado. The groups were, alphabetically, Fishing and Hunting (consumptive actives, including foraging); Motored Recreation (such as snowmobiling, dispersed camping, E-bikes, both winter and summer activities); Nature and Wildlife (including birding and photography); Non-motorized Recreation (such as horseback riding, mountain biking, rafting, both winter and summer); and Working Lands (extractive activities such as ranching, grazing, logging).
