You Know NOCO, But Have You Heard of GOCO?

in Local News

One of Colorado's best ideas…

GOCO (Great Outdoors Colorado) invests a portion of Colorado Lottery proceeds to help preserve and enhance the state's parks, trails, wildlife, rivers, and open spaces.

They have three primary goals:

  • PROTECT more urban and rural land for people and wildlife, notably once-in-a-lifetime, large-scale projects.
  • CONNECT people to the outdoors by increasing bike and pedestrian access in communities across Colorado and filling gaps in important trail systems.
  • INSPIRE more kids and their families to explore and take care of our great outdoors by addressing the growing disconnect between youth and nature.

The Loveland local area has benefited from numerous grants by GOCO, including $84,309 for the Big Thompson River Habitat Restoration Project.
