Coloradans Want Browns Canyon to be the Next National Monument

Judith Kohler
For Bill Dvorak, permanent protection for southern Colorado’s Browns Canyon has been a long time coming. Dvorak is the National Wildlife Federation’s public lands organizer in Colorado. He’s also one of the best-known outfitters in the state and has been leading fishing and rafting trips down the Arkansas River since the early 1980s.
Some of the best rafting runs through Browns Canyon, prized for its rugged, undeveloped terrain that is at the same time easily accessible to Colorado’s populous Front Range. It’s among the country’s top whitewater destinations. Activities on the river generated an estimated $55.7 million in economic benefits last year, according to the Colorado River Outfitters’ Association.
