This may be our only chance to comment before Congress closes more of OUR public lands in Colorado.
The enviromentalists are attempting to close some of the best recreation areas in Colorado. Ex. Umcompadgre Plateau, Flattops above Rifle, New Castle and Dotsero, Bangs Canyon, Little bookcliffs, the list is massive and totaling nearly 1 million acres.
I plead with you as my friends, coworkers, and loved ones to take 5 minutes and express your OBJECTION to any closures.

If not, your next vacation in Colorado may be very different and not include: mountain biking, 4x4's, motorcycles, snowmobiling, etc.
The proposal is for wilderness designation bans all motor vehicles, bicycles, chainsaws, climbing, and fishing or hunting that requires the above.

Please make a difference, let your voice be heard before its a LAW..........
If your from outside Colorado, please use this link to find your representatives: -

Simply, tell them when they see a wilderness bill regardless of State, vote NO!!
