Great Outdoor Colorado
has relied on input from Coloradans across the state to decide how
lottery funds should be invested in the great outdoors.
GOCO holds regular
statewide stakeholder meetings to help us ensure that our investments
continue to meet the needs of all Coloradans.
The current strategic plan
was formulated after extensive outreach. It identifies funding
priorities and initiatives for our Board, and has guided our
grant-making and investments since it was adopted in 2010.
Now it is time to develop a new strategic plan to guide our work for the next five to 10 years.
THE NEXT STRATEGIC PLAN: JOIN THE DISCUSSION
GOCO will host 14 public
forums around the state in August. You are invited to be part of the
process to help set GOCO’s priorities for the next five years.
Join us on Aug. 13 in Fort Collins from 6 - 8 p.m.
Boyd Lake Room, Courthouse office building, 200 W. Oak Street.
Ride Sally Rides
Thursdays at 5:30pm, May - October
Ride, Sally Rides (RSR)
are a weekly opportunity for women to get together and spend time in the
saddle. We are not a new bike club. We are riders, racers, students,
moms, locals, visitors, and friends who want to pedal together on
Thursday evenings. This is simply a weekly excuse to branch out of our
social networks to experience new rides and new people in and around
Fort Collins. Rides are determined by each week’s volunteer leader, and
range in difficulty and style - from social rides to fitness rides;
road, trail, or dirt. We’ll use the community BAP calendar
to post ride leaders and details at least a week in advance. Let’s get
that calendar filled up! Time to show off your favorite ride!
To lead a ride or to join the weekly ride notification list, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Growing Project
Growing Project’s Food Finder team has the goal of rescuing 15,000
lbs. of unwanted/excess produce from local growers and donating it to
nonprofits that feed the hungry.
In conjunction with this
goal, we are asking the community to take part in helping us raise
$15,000 to support our organizing. You can do this by making a pledge
Pledge a penny, nickel,
dime, or dollar per pound of produce we rescue up to the amount of your
