Senator Mark Udall (D-CO) is working to protect Colorado's Central Mountains, and it's important that we make our voices heard and show our support of this proposal.
The Holy Cross, Tenmile Range and Maroon Bells are the iconic peaks of Colorado's Rocky Mountains. Udall's Central Mountains Outdoor Heritage Act would protect then and nearly 240,000 acres of Colorado's most ecologically important public lands through Wilderness and similar designations. This proposal would not only add to our nation's rich Wilderness legacy, but support local economies of Summit, Eagle and Pitkins counties.
Senator Udall has initiated a public conversation about the Central Mountains Outdoor Heritage Act and we should let him know we are in support.
A large and diverse set of supporters, from the local counties to Vail Resorts, have endorsed this vision for protecting these remaining Rocky Mountain gems. The proposal reflects years of stakeholder outreach to incorporate the input of off-road vehicle enthusiasts, mountain bikers, and the ranching community.
