The North Fork valley is a shining example for Colorado’s post-fossil fuel economy. Coal mines have closed and orchards, cideries and farm to table restaurants have opened. Now the ecology and economy of the region are facing renewed threats as oil and gas companies fight to invade roadless areas and drill new wells in the watershed.
In an apparent attempt to poison the widely supported CORE Act, Senator Cory Gardner requested that Mesa County Commissioners identify Wilderness Study Areas to be released for development. Among those targeted were the Palisade, a stunning red-rock buttress overlooking the confluence of West Creek and the Dolores River. The canyons, cliffs and desert valleys are home to countless species including black bears, coyotes, great horned owls, and mountain lions.
At the request of Sen. Gardner, Mesa County Commissioners wrote a letter proposing the release for development of the Little Book Cliffs Wilderness Study Area, which includes one of the nation’s only wild horse ranges.
Despite overwhelming local opposition, developers are pushing the Forest Service to allow cutting a new paved road to a proposed luxury subdivision 2,000 feet above the community of Edwards, Colorado. The road would bisect some of Eagle County’s best remaining elk and deer winter range, putting additional pressure on already dwindling herds.
