Colorado Outdoor Recreation and Donations from the Colorado Lottery with Director Tom Seaver Fat Man Little Trail

Most people who enjoy Outdoor Recreation in Colorado don't realize how much of what they enjoy is actually funded by the Colorado Lottery.  I spoke with the Director of the  lottery, Tom Seaver, about the unique program that has provided BILLIONS of dollars for outdoor organizations throughout Colorado.  We talk about the program itself and a fraction of the projects that it is currently helping to fund.  I was pleasantly surprised by how much of the lands that we all enjoy from playgrounds to state parks have been supported by this project.  A very fun and informative interview.  #outdoors #outdoorrecreation #nature #colorado #hiking #podcast #interview #parks #playgrounds  #coloradolottery — Support this podcast:
