About Colorado Canyons Association

Colorado Canyons Association works with the communities of southwestern Colorado to foster stewardship of three special National Conservation Areas (McInnis Canyons, Dominguez-Escalante and Gunnison Gorge) and the public lands and rivers that link them together. Through partnerships with Colorado Mesa University, the Museum of Western Colorado, Encana Oil and Gas and many others, CCA is involved in activities ranging from restoring native vegetation to organizing outings for thousands of school kids; from mapping, monitoring and interpreting key natural and cultural resources within the NCAs to helping BLM prioritize projects and resource protection.

Based in Grand Junction, the group also works closely with the towns of Delta, Montrose, Fruita and Palisade.
