Columbine Hondo Wilderness Petition
February 15th, 2012
Please sign this online petition in support of the Columbine Hondo!
Dear Senator Udall, Senator Heinrich, and Congressman Luján:
Please support legislation to permanently protect the 46,000 acre Columbine Hondo Wilderness Study Area as a designated Wilderness. By designating these special lands as a part of the National Wilderness Preservation System, we can protect their economic, environmental and scenic values for all time. This treasured public wild land is an important natural resource, for local ranchers, sportsmen, and outdoor enthusiasts. The area is an important watershed that provides critical surface water to local agricultural communities. The Columbine Hondo contains headwaters of the Rio Hondo and Red River, both major tributaries of the upper Rio Grande. It is important that this area be protected and managed in their pristine character, for the benefit of future generations of New Mexicans and visitors to the Land of Enchantment. Thank you for working to protect New Mexico’s Natural Heritage.
I want to get more involved!:
