Open letter to Governor Owens, the Roadless Area Review Taskforce, and the citizens of Colorado 11/14/2005

All hunters and anglers benefit from roadless public lands, whether we ever venture into the backcountry or not. Consequently, the futures of hunting, fishing, outfitting, and other backcountry activities, together with the significant benefits they bring to our state’s celebrity, dignity, and economic welfare, depend on maintaining Colorado’s last remaining islands of unspoiled public wildlands intact.

 

Outdoor Industry Association (pdf)
Open letter to Governor Owens, the Roadless Area Review Taskforce, and the citizens of Colorado 9/13/2005

Roadless areas are a fundamental component of the overall protection of open space and public lands in Colorado. the benefits and values we derive from them -- clean air and water; habitat for fish and wildlife; recreation and renewal -- are critical to the overall health and well being of our forests and the people who enjoy them.
