APA shares many values with nationally known environmental groups. We support promoting the responsible use of ecosystems and resources. We believe that prosperity and environmental stewardship go hand in hand. And we stand up for the protection of all native animals and plants in their natural communities.
On the local, state, and national level, we are committed to protecting our water from pollution and our public lands from misuse and from sales or sweetheart leases to powerful cronies and other private entities.
We are committed to combating climate change, and we will pressure our state politicians allow municipalities in Colorado to create their own more stringent laws governing oil, gas, and coal activities in their own cities and towns.
