Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) funds new river-enhancing projects, including a trail up Clear Creek Canyon from Golden. Lottery dollars in Colorado are spent to enhance outdoor recreation opportunities and protect open space. Often there are attempts to divert this lottery revenue to other areas of need.
CMC works to protect GOCO and the lottery funding so it continues to enhance our outdoor environment, so important to our health, environment and economy.

"Colorado leaders launched eight new greenspace projects aimed at drawing more people to rivers and creeks, awarding nearly $30 million in state lottery grants. Five are in Front Range urban areas. Three are in urbanizing mountain areas. All rely on the lure of water for play, walking, kayaking, biking and fishing."
