GUNNISON PUBLIC LANDS INITIATIVE
The Gunnison Public Lands Initiative was launched by Senator Bennet to take a much more expansive view of protecting public lands in that area. Citizen groups are looking at lands throughout the County that are deserving of legislative protection, from wilderness to a basic mineral withdrawal. This effort was led by the County and Sen. Bennet’s office and coordinated by a public lands advocate. The effort convened a diverse group of stakeholders including mountain bikers, ranchers, motorized users, hunters and water providers as well as conservationists.
