Northwest District Office

The Northwest Colorado District manages about 3.15 million surface acres and is comprised of the Kremmling, Little Snake and White River field offices. The District includes the upper Colorado River corridor along with the White and Yampa rivers. It is home to some of the largest deer and elk herds in the area, along with pronghorn, bighorn sheep and a wide variety of other wildlife. The Northwest District contains the majority of the Colorado range of the Greater Sage Grouse. The Northwest District also manages 7.1 million acres of subsurface minerals, which includes some of the most productive oil and natural gas fields in the state, four of Colorado’s nine coal mines and vast deposits of oil shale.
