Seven Colorado state parks now have stations for free sunscreen

With Colorado’s altitude and plentiful sunshine, it is extremely important to proactively take steps to protect yourself from the sun. Skin cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the United States. Prevention, like wearing sunscreen, avoids the risk of cancer and enforces healthy sun habits. This type of cancer is preventable by adhering to some easy-to-follow precautions including sun protection clothing and broad spectrum SPF 30 or higher, sunscreen and avoiding sun exposure when possible between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Well, now sunscreen stations are available at state parks for free!

  1. Chatfield State Park
  2. Roxborough State Park
  3. Golden Gate Canyon State Park
  4. Eleven Mile and Spinnery State Parks
  5. Ridgeway State Park
  6. State Forest State Park
  7. Castlewood Canyon State Park

Thank you UCHealth and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment for making this possible.
