|From the Save Browns Canyon Instagram|
According to the Sportsmen for Browns site:
Browns Canyon, located along the upper Arkansas River in Colorado, is known for premier trout fishing, outstanding big game habitat, world-famous whitewater, rugged and remote wildlands, and a proud cattle ranching tradition. This diversity supports thousands of jobs, from river outfitters and guides to ranchers in the nearby communities of Salida and Buena Vista. Protecting this 22,000 acre gem along the Arkansas River as a National Monument is a community-driven effort to preserve this unique natural and economic resource for generations to come.I suggest you head over to their website to take a look at this special place and their efforts. In particular, they're seeking National Monument status for the site which would provide protection for this place in perpetuity. Sign-up for their emails.
