#TheMountainMail publishes another LTE, “Help Protect Natural Landscapes,” urging public comment by tomorrow September 20, as “our local public lands are threatened by proposals in the BLM’s Eastern Colorado Resource Management Plan.” “If these proposals are allowed to stand, of the 658,000 acres managed by the BLM’s Royal Gorge Field Office, 98 percent would be open to mining, oil and gas extraction and other types of development. If this happens, the natural qualities and resources of these lands will be permanently lost.” “This proposal would not only affect the recreation opportunities that local residents value, it would also affect the local economy and the livelihoods of many of our neighbors, including river guides and outfitters, hunting and fishing guides, outdoor clothing and equipment shops, bicycle shops and everyone else whose income benefits from outdoor sports and recreation. So for all the people who enjoy our local public lands – hikers, boaters, fishermen, hunters, campers, backpackers, mountain bikers, etc. – please help us protect these natural landscapes by submitting comments to the BLM by Sept. 20.” Read the full letter to the editor by #FriendsofBrownsCanyon founding board member, Michael Kunkel, here: http://www.themountainmail.com/opinion/letters/article_67d8ef2a-d94a-11e9-b54d-33940be750ed.html And comment to the BLM by tomorrow, Sept 20: https://go.usa.gov/xQcZT @mypubliclands @usinterior #BLMWild #seeblm #coloradowild #publiclands #yourpubliclands
