routt county’s WILDLIFE NEEDS YOUR HELP!
Keep Routt Wild is a community organization dedicated to preserving wildlife and wild places in Routt County. Our mission is to promote policies and practices for the benefit of conserving the Yampa Valley for future generations of outdoor enthusiasts by balancing opportunities for recreational development with the habitat needs of wildlife. We are hikers, bikers, hunters, anglers, skiers, ranchers, and local business owners…we are Routt County.
As the Steamboat Springs City Council considers proposals to implement the citizen supported 2A initiative, Keep Routt Wild has engaged the community to voice support for an alternate trail development plan that expands trail development in a manner that also promotes wildlife and land conservation in the valley. The current Mad Rabbit trails project under consideration would impact over 14 square miles of undisturbed habitat in U.S. Forest Service lands around Steamboat. Unfortunately, the implementation of the Mad Rabbit Trails project poses serious threats to wildlife habitat, ongoing conservation efforts in the valley, and will have a harmful impact on other recreational and economic interests in the community.
Join the movement to support Routt County’s legacy of outdoor recreation and wildlife conservation…we need your voice!
