  • Learn Before You Burn

It doesn’t take long for fire danger to increase once snow begins to melt. Combine that with warm, windy conditions and brush and grass dry out quickly. A wind-whipped fire in quick-burning, dormant vegetation can cause a burn to easily become uncontrollable.  Click here for more information .

  • BLM Acquires Parcel at the Entrance of Cross Mountain Canyon

The entrance to Cross Mountain Canyon and 2.5 miles of the Yampa River immediately upstream have been permanently conserved for the benefit of fish, wildlife and the public.  The project is a component of President Obama's America's Great Outdoors initiative.  It is a joint effort by Western Rivers Conservancy, Yampa Valley Legacy Project and the BLM.  The parcel also opens new access to tens of thousands of acres of sourrounding public land, including BLM's vast Cross Mountain Wilderness Study Area.

This newly acquired parcel is not open to the public at this time.  A management plan and cleanup work are currently underway.  Once this has been completed the land will be open for the public to enjoy.
