The far northwest corner of Colorado is a rugged land filled with rare wildlife, wild rivers and rich cultural resources. The area contains over a million acres of public lands, much of which qualifies for protection as wilderness. In addition, several parts of the Yampa River were deemed suitable for Wild and Scenic designation.
To this day, not a single acre of public land in far northwest Colorado has been granted status as wilderness, but a decade of hard work by local citizens and the environmental community has ensured that the blueprint determining how these public lands are managed for the next generation does provide some temporary protections.
Please join us in thanking the Bureau of Land Management for recognizing that these places matter to the people who live in northwest Colorado, as well as all Americans who care about our public lands.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Colorado Environmental Coalition.
