CRAIG, CO — A long awaited Resource Management Plan (RMP) for a treasured portion of Northwest Colorado was released today. The Bureau of Land Management’s Little Snake Field Office (LSFO) released the final proposal following years of input from local stakeholders, unbiased scientists and economists, and their own internal studies.
We’re approaching the 4th of July holiday which allows us a moment to stop and celebrate our country’s independence. The Wilderness Society has another reason to celebrate this week as well. Yesterday the Bureau of Land Management’s Little Snake Field Office in Northwest Colorado announced a major victory—Vermillion Basin in Northwest Colorado will be off-limits to oil and gas drilling. This was a long and hard fought process by our Colorado staff and our coalition partners.
