The Denver region's natural environment is one of our greatest assets. Encompassing ecosystems as diverse as tall grass prairie and alpine tundra, our natural environment offers valuable habitat to a rich array of flora and fauna. It also provides much needed water, wonderful recreational opportunities, and precious solace for the region's human population.
DRCOG uses environmental data in the course of its regional planning activities. From these, we produce useful information for planning our natural environment. Some of the information currently available includes:
- Regional parks and open space. DRCOG periodically surveys federal, state, special district, and city and county entities to complete a parks and open space inventory for the nine-county Denver region. The most recent survey was completed in spring 2013.
