Since 1912, the Colorado Mountain Club has been an unwavering advocate for the protection of Colorado's wild, remote, and quiet places.
Last week, CMC's ten-year campaign for more Wilderness in central Colorado took a step toward victory when Senator Udall announced the Central Mountains Proposal. The Central Mountains proposal could encompass as many as 32 areas in Eagle, Pitkin and Summit counties, expanding existing wilderness areas in the region, including Holy Cross, Eagles Nest and the Maroon Bells.
This is a great step; but there is much more work to be done.
Senator Udall is now calling for public comments. This is our chance to make our voices heard in support of Udall's Wilderness Proposal and to let him know that there are additional wilderness-quality lands, such as Lower Piney and Basalt Mountain, which would make great additions to the proposal.
