Hunters, anglers, wildlife advocates and outdoor enthusiasts in Colorado are telling the Bureau of Land Management what’s special about South Park, one of the region’s renowned fishing havens and site of several state parks and wildlife areas. The BLM has started updating the resource management plan for its Royal Gorge field office and an important part of that work will be writing a blueprint for possible oil and gas development in South Park.

While the initial public comment period closes Friday, the BLM will seek more input in coming months as it considers various development scenarios and writes a draft plan.

Add your name to the list of sportsmen and women calling for a monument designation for the Boulder-White Clouds today.
