Senator Mark Udall
(D-CO) is working on a proposal to establish new wilderness areas in Colorado’s
Central Mountains and at Browns Canyon. The Senator has made it clear that
public input will drive what his final proposal looks like, so a really strong show of support from Colorado
activists like you who support new wilderness is crucial.

Central Mountain proposal includes all world class recreational lands in
Representative Polis' Eagle and Summit County Wilderness Preservation Act and
an additional 13 areas in Pitkin County. This is a tremendous step towards new
wilderness in this region! Maps are available on the Senator's website. His Browns Canyon proposal includes a core Wilderness area, home to some
of Colorado’s best-loved river rafting spots along the iconic Arkansas River,
which overlaps with a slightly larger Arkansas River Canyon National
