VOC Partners with Colorado Tourism Office for Field Guide, Sustainable Tourism

Posted on 5/4/2017


The Field Guide encourages locals and tourists to visit lesser-known locales in an effort to preserve the state's resources and boost local economies.

On Thursday, May 4, 2017, the Colorado Tourism Office gathered to launch the new Colorado Field Guide, a customizable collection of off-the-beaten-path itineraries. The guide is part of a broader movement to foster sustainable tourism in the state: as Colorado continues to grow as a home and as a tourist destination, some of our state's most beloved places are being overworked and the towns overburdened.

The Colorado Field Guide is designed to alleviate this problem by directing traffic away from popular places to hidden gems in lesser-known destinations like Lamar or La Junta. Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (VOC) is proud to partner with the Colorado Tourism Office on this initiative by including our 50+ volunteer stewardship projects in the Guide as well as DIY Stewardship tasks through our #YourCO app.
