About Elevate the Peak

Elevate the Peak is led by a steering committee and guided by a coalition of regional nonprofits to develop a collective vision and strategy to guide current and future land conservation and outdoor recreation efforts in the Pikes Peak region. Elevate the Peak will include a dynamic, six-month community engagement effort focused in El Paso, Fremont, Park, and Teller counties that will consist of web-based community engagement and a series of geographically targeted conversations to listen and learn from all corners of the community.

Our goal is to better understand how Coloradans of all ages, backgrounds, and identities use our outdoor spaces to work, play, escape, engage, and connect. We want to know what our neighbors love about calling the Pikes Peak Region home, as well as what excites, inspires, and concerns Pikes Peak residents as our region enters a period of unprecedented change.

A collaboration of this type has never occurred in the region before. The organizations that make up the Steering Committee and Leadership Council all agree that the only way we can be successful is to come together to listen to you - the community - and then work together to accomplish our region’s biggest, most ambitious conservation and recreation goals. Without a significant effort like Elevate the Peak, we will never be able to act at the comprehensive and systemic level needed to protect and leverage our great outdoors.
