Browns Canyon National Monument

On February 19, 2015, President Obama designated approximately 21,500 acres of rugged cliffs, colorful rock outcroppings and stunning mountain vistas in Chaffee County near the town of Salida, Colorado, as Browns Canyon National Monument.

The proclamation allows for continued historic uses of the area, including hunting, fishing, and livestock grazing, which will continue to be managed under existing rules and regulations. The designation does not alter or affect the valid water rights of any party and does not affect agreements governing management of the Arkansas River flows.

Colorado's 8.3 million acres of BLM public lands, along with 27 million acres of mineral estate, are concentrated primarily in the western portion of the State. The lands range from alpine tundra, colorful canyons, and mesas in the southwest, to rolling sage-covered hills in the northwest. These public lands play a vital role in providing open space and contribute to Colorado's quality of life.
