Speak out for Colorado's Backcountry

The United States Forest Service (USFS) has recently issued a draft rule for Colorado’s National Forests that weakens and removes existing protections for backcountry roadless areas.

NOW is the time to learn more about how this proposed Rule affects you and let the USFS know that contiguous undisturbed, backcountry areas are important to you as a whitewater paddler and advocate for clean free-flowing rivers.
Here is how you can help:
