Public Lands Day

September 26

Let's celebrate. While we are still socially distancing, here are three ways you can celebrate our public lands.

1. Enjoy the Fall colors on your favorite public lands. We are lucky to have access to local trails like the Rio Grande or Crown Mountain trails, as well as the extensive White River National Forest lands.

2. Prepare to vote. Check your registration, and read up on issues in the blue ballot book that will arrive soon via mail. Reintroduction of gray wolves is a ballot question relating to public lands.

3. Make your voice heard. Colorado Wild Public Lands is analysing and submitting comments on the Valle Seco proposed land exchange in the San Juan National Forest near Pagosa Springs. Speak up on this or another public lands issue.
