Public Lands Face Big Challenges

Since well over 80% of Chaffee County is public land of some kind, you might want to learn more about the challenges surrounding these lands. On Monday, December 11 at the United Methodist Church in Salida at 228 E. 4th St. there will be a presentation sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Chaffee County that is open to the public. A social will start at 11:30 with the program from noon to 1 pm. Feel free to bring your lunch. In the past year, the current Congress and the Department of Interior have aggressively pursued numerous initiatives that threaten to diminish our federal public lands–reducing national monuments, gutting the Antiquities Act, cutting agency budgets, weakening resource extraction regulations, and proposing to divest our Federal Public Lands to the individual states.

Sue Greiner and Kathy McCoy, as a project of the Arkansas Valley Women United, will discuss the Bears Ears National Monument review, as well as these other concerns and their implications for Chaffee County, Colorado and the West. Sue Greiner has co-owned Wilderness Aware Rafting in Buena Vista for 32 years. She has a B.S. in Wildlife Biology and a B.A. in Sustainability Studies. Sue piloted a community solar project in Buena Vista and is on the board of Friends of Browns Canyon. She is an avid hiker, loves to travel, and is passionate about protecting our public lands. Kathy McCoy taught graphic design for 32 years. She has applied her design skills and experiences to local organizations like GARNA, USFS, Town of BV and volunteers for Friends of Four Mile, the Stage & Rail Trail, and various land use initiatives.

She chaired a focus group in the Chaffee County Land Use Roundtable and the Citizens Code Committee.
