Awards

The CSPEPA Board recognizes that Colorado Parks & Wildlife employees and volunteers are expected to perform their job duties and responsibilities with the highest degree of professionalism. However, performance sometimes exceeds this high expectation. In addition, the Board recognizes citizens sometimes also perform beyond their normal civic duties and responsibilities. Because of this CSPEPA maintains an award program that recognizes deserving individuals or groups of individuals
