BLM releases long-awaited management plan

Does oil and gas leasing in the North Fork Valley concern you? Do you want more protection for the BLM lands of the Uncompahgre Plateau? Do you think the lower Dolores River deserves Wild and Scenic status?

If you answered “yes”, you need to know about the Uncompahgre Draft Resource Management Plan, known as an “RMP.”

This is a big deal, and about time, as this plan has been in the works for over 6 years.  The long awaited plan is now open for comment until September 1, 2016.
