Colorado Dem senator introduces bill to create 61,000-acre wilderness area in San Juan Mountains

WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet introduced a bill Thursday that would designate nearly 61,000 acres of the San Juan Mountains as wilderness, extending the strictest federal conservation protections to some of the range’s most prominent peaks.

“Not only are these iconic landscapes vital to outdoor recreation and local economies, but they also stand as a symbol of our public lands legacy in Colorado – a legacy we must pass onto our kids and grandkids,” Bennet, a Democrat, said in a news release.
