COLORADO - Public Comments sought on Proposed Action for Travel Management of Rico-West Dolores Landscape

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

As you know, the San Juan National Forest is asking for public comments on a Proposed Action for travel management of the Rico-West Dolores Landscape in southern Colorado. The BRC Legal Team has worked hard to defend against unreasonable trail closures in the Rico-West Dolores Landscape. Pivotal in this effort has been the guidance and support of our fine partners in Colorado, including Trails Preservation Alliance (TPA), Colorado Off-Highway Vehicle Coalition (COHVCO), Public Access Preservation Association (PAPA), and San Juan Trail Riders (SJTR). 

The Forest Service is looking at management options for the Rico-West Dolores Landscape, and the Proposed Action includes several elements of concern. It seems that what the Forest Service has worked to defend in court it is now ready to give away. We need your help TODAY to get this process back on track and preserve key riding opportunities in the Rico-West Dolores!  Please submit comments on or before the January 30, 2015 deadline.

For help in commenting, please CLICK HERE. Or, if you have questions, contact the BRC Land Use Department or any of the above-named partner organizations.  And don't hesitate to make a donation earmarked for the Rico-West Dolores effort. Without your support our Legal Program cannot exist. 

 Thanks in advance and, as always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact BRC.
