Colorado State Wildlife Areas (SWA) are acquired using hunter and angler dollars for the express purpose of conserving wildlife habitat and providing wildlife-related recreation. Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) manages more than 350 SWA's for this purpose.
As both human population and tourism/visitation has boomed in recent years, CPW has noticed a significant trend of people engaging in activities for which these properties were not intended. Requiring a SWA pass or license to access SWA's reinforces the conservation intent of these properties, and ensures users are contributing to their maintenance.
