Map Showing Public Owned Lands in Colorado


You can see from the above map that west of the I-25 there is a severe shortage of private land. The checkerboard pattern in the eastern plains is the result of two sections of each township being designated "School Land" and given to the State Board of Land Commissioners. Most of the BLM and the School Land properties are leased for agriculture (cattle grazing). Approximately 450,000 acres of School Land is leased by the Colorado Division of Wildlife for seasonal hunting purposes. logo
