Income from the stamp will be used to protect and improve wildlife habitat throughout the state.A habitat stamp is needed by anyone 19 to 64 years old who enters a state wildlife area. Anglers who bring family members to a state wildlife area must be sure to purchase the needed stamps. The cost of a stamp is $10.25 when purchased alone and includes the Colorado search and rescue fee.The habitat stamp is not needed, however, if an angler fishes waters that are not located on a state wildlife area.
