DENVER -- Our state's growing population is spilling over into our Colorado's beautiful outdoors. So much so, that the International Sportsmen's Expo at the Colorado Convention Center this weekend has become the region's largest show.
The annual event bringing in tens of thousands of people each year is an opportunity for people to learn how to explore the Rocky Mountains fully and responsibly.
“Our state parks have had record visitation over the past couple of years,” said Rebecca Ferrell, Statewide Public Information Officer for Colorado Parks & Wildlife (CPW). “This past year we had over 15 million visitors to our state parks.”
That record visitation in recent years makes staying on the path traveled even more vital to the natural beauty.
