May 2, 2018 — Another success! We just finalized the purchase of 40 additional acres of private land adjacent to the West Elk Wilderness area in Colorado. Add this to the 40 adjacent acres we already own, and we are now ready to transfer the only remaining private land within the proposed East Elk Creek addition to the designated West Elk Wilderness. Now the work begins in transferring the land. We couldn’t have done this without our supporters and fellow wilderness lovers. Thank you!
Reid Haughey, Intermountain Program Director and project lead, recently spent a full day bushwhacking and assessing the property before purchase to ensure a successful acquisition. The trip was scheduled around sage grouse lekking closures and we’re happy to tell you that our project will successfully unify sage grouse habitat.
THANK YOU for your generous support of our mission to Keep the Promise of Wilderness for future generations!
