The state of Colorado is renowned for its outdoor recreational opportunities, many of which occur on the state's public lands. Providing information and products about these lands is an integral component of the missions of the public agencies who manage them. To meet this responsibility, several agencies formed partnerships to provide information resources specific to Colorado's public lands. However, these resources cannot be fully utilized if the public is unaware of their existence. Despite funding shortages and bureaucratic restrictions, creative strategies and partnerships can be implemented to increase the public's knowledge of such resources. This paper evaluates current marketing activities for two existing resources and suggests potential strategies to increase public awareness of these and other information centers in the state.
