Did you know that the BLM Royal Gorge currently manages over 79,000 acres as Areas of Critical Environmental Concerns? ACECs have special management to protect important & relevant values, such as historical, cultural, scenic values, fish, wildlife, or other natural resources. BLM Royal Gorge has recognized even more ACECs in their management planning process, and since 2017, had proposed to increase ACEC areas to 101,500 acres in their preferred alternative! However the Department of Interior is not only rolling back these new proposals from the local field office, they are slashing overall ACEC areas to 46,300 acres, well below current levels! DOI and BLM National have dictated that the preferred alternative completely zero out and remove the 12,000+ acre Beaver Creek ACEC, designated for its rugged undeveloped landscape with access to primitive recreation, scenic opportunities, wildlife sites, and remnants of historical use. BLM also now proposes to zero out the Ruby Mountain and Railroad Gulch ACECs, 1,800 acres that bookend the Browns Canyon National Monument, and share the same biodiversity and recreation values. On top of this, BLM also now proposes to greatly reduce the Grape Creek and Arkansas Canyonlands ACECs, areas renowned for outstanding recreation, critical and valued wildlife, scenic resources, flora, and historical and cultural values. Many of these ACECs overlap with currently proposed Wilderness in @RepDianaDeGette’s 2019 #ColoradoWildernessAct, such as Beaver Creek, Table Mountain, McIntyre Hills, and Grape Creek. Some of these areas are already under threat, with the proposed gold mining at Grape Creek, aggregate quarry expansion at Table Mountain, and proposed military helicopter landing zones at many of these valued BLM lands. We need your voice in support of protecting these valuable ACEC areas like Beaver Creek, Grape Creek, Railroad Gulch, and the Arkansas Canyonlands!
