Fracking and the Great Outdoors


As home to 42 state parks that protect habitat and offer hunting and fishing opportunities, we’re all invested in the great outdoors.

Every year in Colorado, the oil and natural gas industry supports the Colorado Department of Natural Resources (DNR) through generous donations to help protect our home. Thanks to fracking, funds reached $117.5 million in 2014.

But that’s not all. Year round, wildlife conservation is a priority. Our state’s strong regulations not only focus on the health and safety of Coloradans, but also consistently work hard to keep our air, land, and water safe for generations to come.

This hunting and fishing season, remember how responsible oil and natural gas development helps preserve the great outdoors.
