Connecting Science With Conservation
The Colorado Natural Heritage Program is Colorado’s only comprehensive source of information on the status and location of Colorado’s rarest and most threatened species and natural plant communities. We share information with a wide range of stakeholders in partnerships that work to ensure the Colorado’s biodiversity resources are not diminished. CNHP has an enormous impact on conservation in Colorado through these partnerships.

CNHP has developed detailed descriptions for all of the ecological systems in Colorado.
CNHP regularly surveys for biological resources in Colorado counties helping to create a clearer picture of our biodiversity.
