Our Becoming an Outdoors Woman (BOW) fun fall shoot - trap, skeet, clays with instruction was held October 15 at Colorado Clays (Brighton).  It was a very fun event, coupled with an excellent lunch and raffle.  We posted photos on Instagram and Facebook (CWF Facebook page and ColoradoBow Facebook page).  Stay tuned for announcement soon of of dates for winter snoeshowing outings. BOW is a nationally popular program offered in 38 states. CWF offers this program in Colorado.CWF received a Partners in the Outdoors grant award from Colorado Parks and Recreation Association and Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation to provide a limited number of scholarships for the August BOW workshop and for the fun fall shoot!   We thank these two organizations.

We will continue to build upon our effectiveness for conserving Colorado's all-important habitat. Do you want balanced wildlife conservation on federal public lands in Colorado? Do you want reasonable access to public lands? So does CWF.

CWF continues to work with a coalition of residents and organizations to protect important wildlife habitat and streams in iconic South Park. BLM  issued preliminary alternatives on March 8, 2017 in its "master leasing planning" process for lands it manages in South Park.  See Our Stand for CWF's comment letter (5/4/17) to BLM.

Browns Canyon was designated a national monument by President February 19, 2015 and dedicated July 18.  It will be managed cooperatively by BLM and US Forest Service. Click here for FAQs (7/15).
