Protect the Colorado’s Continental Divide: Sign Our Petition Today!

I support protecting lands in the Continental Divide region of Colorado as new wilderness and special management areas.

Colorado’s Central Rocky Mountains are home to alpine lakes and incredible rivers and streams. Local communities and cities along the front-range depend on this area for clean drinking water, healthy wildlife habitats and fishing streams, and outdoor recreation activities. Visitors from across Colorado, the U.S., and the world come to Colorado’s Central Rocky Mountains to hike, camp, ski, kayak, raft, hunt, fish, mountain bike, horseback ride, ATV, and snowmobile.

Outdoor recreation is critical to Colorado’s economy. It generates $13.2 billion in consumer spending and is responsible for 125,000 jobs that pay $4.2 billion in salaries and wages.

Please protect the wild lands in Colorado’s Continental Divide region in the face of the ever-increasing threats of resource extraction and over- development. I urge you to safeguard these wild lands now to protect our economy and livelihood for future generations.
