TAKE ACTION for Colorado’s Continental Divide

Join us and call on Senator Gardner to add to Colorado’s rich history of preserving its wild landscapes by co-sponsoring Senator Bennet’s Continental Divide Recreation, Wilderness, and Camp Hale Legacy Act (S.4337). The Act would designate 90,000 acres as Wilderness Areas, Recreation Management Areas, Wildlife Conservation Areas, and also designate the first-ever National Historic Landscape around Camp Hale to preserve and promote the 10th Mountain Division’s storied legacy.
For nearly a decade, Colorado leaders, conservationists, mountain bikers, sportsmen, veterans and other stakeholders have worked together to develop a proposal that balances protecting wilderness and sustaining recreation in Colorado’s central Rocky Mountains. Since 2015 The Conservation Alliance has supported Conservation Colorado’s grassroots efforts to develop what now is the Continental Divide Recreation, Wilderness, and Camp Hale Legacy Act. In January of 2018, Senator Bennet and Congressman Polis introduced companion bills into the Senate and House, putting these iconic landscapes one step closer to permanent protection. A co-sponsorship from Senator Gardner would add the bipartisan support necessary to attempt to get this bill over the finish line and added to Colorado’s public land legacy.
