For years, Colorado TU and our Grand Valley Anglers chapter have worked on protecting and restoring habitat on western Colorado's Roan Plateau, home to rare native trout populations as well as outstanding big game habitat and scenic forests, canyons and waterfalls. The Denver Post's Scott Willoughby recently wrote about the Roan's unique values. The Roan has also been a flash point in controversy between energy development and conservation, including a long-standing legal battle over BLM's oil and gas leasing on the Roan. TU and other conservation groups are hard at work seeking a resolution that can protect the Roan's outstanding fish and wildlife habitat while also allowing responsible energy development to move forward on appropriate sites. Getting to that solution will take some real political muscle, and we got a much-needed boost when Senator Bennet, Senator Udall, Representative Tipton, and Governor Hickenlooper weighed in with a supportive letter to the Secretary of the Interior.
