Why RAWA matters
Colorado Mountain Club members value the natural beauty of flora and fauna throughout the state and strongly support the conservation of natural resources and wildlife across the country. Birding, wildlife viewing and fishing are common club activities as stand-alone recreation opportunities as well as scenic benefits when hiking, climbing or skiing in Colorado. By protecting wildlife and their natural habitats through the RAWA bill, we will also help protect scenic landscapes and unique recreation experiences for generations to come. — Colorado Mountain Club, CO-OP Member
