In June 2020, the Upper Colorado River Wild & Scenic Stakeholder Group officially made it through the provisional period when the Bureau of Land Management and U.S. Forest Service formally accepted the Amended and Restated Upper Colorado River Wild and Scenic Stakeholder Group Management Plan. This plan seeks to protect recreational fishing and boating related values along the Upper Colorado River from Gore Canyon to lower Glenwood Canyon. We are incredibly proud of this 12-year accomplishment!
Active since 2007, the Upper Colorado Wild & Scenic Stakeholders have participated in the Wild & Scenic River Study process and subsequent alternative management plans as part of the Resource Management Plan revision process with BLM's Kremmling Colorado River Valley Field Offices and the White River National Forest.
The Stakeholder Group has achieved several notable milestones in our progress toward balancing permanent protection of the Outstandingly Remarkable Values along the Upper Colorado River.
