“Wild Places Are in Jeopardy.” Yet another LTE in #TheMountainMail by a local business owner concerned about BLM National’s handling of the Eastern Colorado Resource Management Plan and our local #BLMWild #publiclands. “Our local Royal Gorge Field Office for the Bureau of Land Management... submitted to the national BLM office a plan to identify and secure 278,000 acres of land worthy of special environmental protection... But the national BLM... responded to the locally developed draft plan with a “preferred alternative” that deems only 48,000 acres worthy of that distinction. That opens up key places like Badger Creek, Echo Canyon, Bear Mountain, Eightmile Mountain, Red Canyon, Cooper Mountain and Cucharas Canyon to oil, gas and mineral extraction.” Pete Scales, owner of @ravenswoodoutdoors, ends the thoughtful letter with a terrific call to action: “It’s time for immediate action in a real fight for the protection of our wild public lands. I encourage all of my Arkansas River Valley friends and neighbors to tell the national BLM office what these precious areas mean to us and that they should be protected from exploitation.” Read the full letter to the editor by Ravenswood Outdoors owner, Pete Scales, here: http://www.themountainmail.com/opinion/letters/article_66496844-da1a-11e9-9908-eb844259e490.html Comment to the BLM by TOMORROW, SEPT 20: https://go.usa.gov/xQcZT @mypubliclands @usinterior @EcoFlight #seeblm #coloradowild #yourpubliclands
