New @ArkValleyVoice article: “Sept. 20 The Cut-off for Public Comment on BLM Proposed Roll Back of Conservation Protection in Eastern Colorado.” Ark Valley Voice joined Wild Connections & @ecoflight for a recent flyover of local BLM public lands. “Our objective: to overfly some of the 278,000 acres proposed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for a rollback of protection from development and mineral exploration.
