Rocky Mountain Wild will host the fourth Colorado Endangered Species Week, May 10-16, 2020, with the national Endangered Species Day occurring on May 15 and Colorado Public Lands Day occurring on May 16. This week is dedicated to the mission of educating the public and working towards the protection of the over 300 plant and animal species that are at risk in Colorado, including our state animal, the bighorn sheep.

During this week, Rocky Mountain Wild and our partners will be organizing speakers, fundraisers, and other activities along the Front Range, with major events occurring in Boulder and Denver.

Governor Polis declared the week as Colorado Endangered Species Week last year, and we hope that he will do so again this year.
