2008 Roadless Inventory

Attend one of Wild Connections’ Community Meetings. Wild Connections is sponsoring a “Roadless Roadshow” in 7 communities in early June. This free public presentation will discuss the ecological values of Roadless areas, give details and facts pertaining to the current management of these areas such as fire management flexibility, and provide trails and hiking information so you can go explore Roadless areas in your own backyard. Please attend one of these shows!

  • Evergreen – Wednesday, June 4
  • Pueblo – Thursday, June 5
  • Salida – Monday, June 9
  • Westcliffe – Tuesday, June 10
  • Leadville – Wednesday, June 11
  • Colorado Springs – Thursday, June 12
  • Denver – TBA

Why is this timely and important? The US Forest Service is working right now on developing a Colorado-specific rule. The draft Colorado Roadless Rule is slated to be published in June. While we don’t know the details of what this new Colorado rule will look like, we are certain that it will weaken current protections currently afforded to these undeveloped lands. Wild Connections, and the broader conservation community, have made it a priority to analyze the impacts of the proposed rule, and we will need your voice to help ensure that the human and ecological services that Colorado’s Roadless lands provide are not compromised.
