State of the Rockies Polling Project Gets $175,000 Grant

Colorado College's State of the Rockies Project has received a $175,000 grant from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation to conduct a poll assessing attitudes toward conservation in six Western states.

The "Colorado College State of the Rockies 2012 Conservation in the West Poll" to be conducted in January 2012 expands on work that was begun in January 2011 with the first-ever such poll, when voters in Colorado, Montana, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming were canvassed in a bipartisan poll. This year voters in Arizona also will be included.

Survey results will be released by Colorado College's State of the Rockies Project, which, for the past nine years, has worked to increase public understanding of vital issues affecting the Rockies through annual report cards, lectures, forums and other activities. "These annual polls are becoming a valuable research tool to measure attitudes and opinions over time for the Rocky Mountain states," says Walt Hecox, faculty director for the Rockies Project.
