Protect the Dominguez-Escalante

The Dominguez-Escalante National Conservation Area is one of western Colorado’s most precious landscapes. Waterfalls tumble off of desert cliffs into colorful creek bed canyons full of cottonwood groves, bugling elk, and sandhill cranes. In addition, the area is also home to ancient Ute tribe artifacts and sacred lands.

The Bureau of Land Management is drafting a plan of how to keep this magnificent area healthy and vibrant for generations to come – and they need to hear your voice!

With the Dominguez Canyon Wilderness at its core, this thriving landscape is home to incredible wildlife and the endangered Colorado hookless cactus. Its hiking and horseback trails draw visitors from near and far to explore the canyons and mesas that surround the roaring Gunnison River. Congress designated the Dominguez-Escalante National Conservation Area in 2009 to forever protect the pristine wilderness, roaming wildlife, boating and hiking opportunities, and ancient cultural sites that make this place uniquely Coloradan. The BLM is off to a good start with a plan for protecting this area – but wilderness and wildlife remain at risk.
