Last week, Conservation Alliance grantee, The Thompson Divide Coalition, launched a new website. It's called ‘Faces of the Thompson Divide' and is designed to capture the stories of the people behind our local effort to protect more than 220,000 acres of public lands in the White River and Gunnison National Forests.
The website is just another example of the broad-based coalition united by one goal: protecting and preserving the Thompson Divide for the long-term.
‘Faces of the Thompson Divide' highlights the importance of the Thompson Divide in daily life, and the vibrant economy and the countless livelihoods the land supports. All of us — from the Roaring Fork to the North Fork, and from the Crystal River to the Colorado River valleys — have a stake in keeping the Thompson Divide the way it is. Continued additions to the website will only help reinforce this.
You can submit your own story why the Thompson Divide is important to your livelihood, your business, or your community here.
