Colorado’s Browns Canyon National Monument provides outstanding opportunities for fishing, whitewater boating, hiking and many other outdoor activities. It is one of the most popular whitewater destinations in the country; attracting roughly 150,000 visitors annually who contribute $60 million to the local economy. It also provides critical habitat for bighorn sheep, elk, mule deer and mountain lions. We proudly funded Conservation Colorado and Conservation Lands Foundation for their work to protect this special place.
