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.

South Park's Master Leasing Planning process is in jeopardy. A Dept. of Interior Report issued October 24, 2017 recommends tossing out the tool. Park County and many diverse stakeholders including CWF have worked hard and effectively for several years to gain protections through this process for important wildlife habitat and streams in iconic South Park. We ask Secretary Zinke and BLM to retain the landscape level planning for South Park.For our view as to the natural resources that need protection, see 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).

Greater Sage Grouse: the BLM's 2015 Conservation Plans are at risk of being overhauled. The plans were the result of collaborative work over several years in Colorado and in other western states. Based on the plans the US Fish and Wildlife Service decided not to list this species as threatened or endangered. Now a review committee at Dept. of Interior has recommended overhaulting the plans. We urge Sec. of Interior Zinke and Congress not to discard the plans.
