Mining claims pose threat to Browns Canyon

Bill Dvorak, Jan. 7, 2014

It was a great day for Chaffee County and Colorado when Sens. Mark Udall and Michael Bennet introduced the Browns Canyon National Monument and Wilderness Act of 2013 in December.

There is broad support for this legislation among us locals because it will bring significant economic benefits and preserve the special resources of the area as they are now.

I’ve been asked why we need to make Browns Canyon a national monument – why can’t we just leave it as it is?
