Do Not Develop the Little Snake Resource Area

The Little Snake Resource Area boasts some of Colorado's most rugged and wild landscapes; world-class elk, mule deer, and pronghorn hunting; ancient petroglyph-filled canyons; and excellent hiking and whitewater rafting. Alarmingly, the BLM has published a draft management plan that would relegate most of these lands to irresponsible oil and gas development, road building, and off-road vehicle (ORV) use.

The damaging effects of this proposal to the wide-open landscapes and rural western lifestyle of the region would be widespread and long-term. That's why we need your help today - to take action and convince the BLM to adopt a responsible, sustainable plan that will protect wildlife and special places like the Vermillion Basin proposed wilderness.
