A merger of Center for Native Ecosystems and Colorado Wild, Rocky Mountain Wild protects the southern portion of our namesake Rocky Mountains.
Encompassing the entirety of Colorado, northern New Mexico, southern Wyoming and eastern Utah, the Southern Rocky Mountain ecoregion boasts the highest summits in the entire Rocky Mountain range. With an average elevation of 9,670 feet and 54 peaks soaring above 14,000 feet, our region is truly the rooftop of North America. These mountains slope to meet high desert mesas and red rock canyons to the west and golden prairies to the east.
