Salazar Dedicates New Colorado Wilderness Area

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar was in Grand Junction, CO this week to dedicate the new Dominguez-Escalante National Conservation Area, a 210,000-acre wildland protected in March. The Conservation Alliance supported protections for the area with grants to Colorado Environmental Coalition and Western Colorado Congress. In his dedication, Salazar referred to the economic benefits of protecting places like the Dominguez Canyon (pictured above). Click here for the full story.
