Colorado State Office

The BLM manages more than 8.3 million acres of public lands and more than 27 million acres of mineral estate in Colorado - mostly concentrated in the western part of the state. BLM lands in Colorado range from alpine tundra, colorful canyons and mesas in the southwest, to rolling sage covered hills in the northwest.

The public owns more than one-third of Colorado. BLM Colorado adheres to multiple-use management, managing public lands for both commercial and public uses based on sound science. The economic health of many Colorado communities is supported by ranching, energy development and tourism associated with public lands. Public lands offer recreational opportunities, cultural resources, resource and energy potential, and vast open spaces. Colorado’s lands produce vast amounts of coal, oil, natural gas and geothermal power to help meet the nation’s energy needs.
