Last month, the House Committee on Natural Resources passed the SECURE American Energy Act which overhauls federal lands energy policy to promote expanded exploration, development, and production of oil, gas, and wind resources. KDNK’s Amy Hadden Marsh spoke with Wilderness Workshop attorney Peter Hart about why the group does not support the bill.


Three bills in front of Congress would transfer control of energy development on public lands from Feds to states, and allow states to collect royalties. KDNK’s Amy Hadden Marsh spoke with Wilderness Workshop’s Justin Patrick to find out why he calls the bills ham-fisted and sneaky.

She's a creative dynamo with a new project, Nature in Translation, commissioned by The Wilderness Workshop. KDNK's Luke Nestler found out all about it.

A crowd gathered in Glenwood Springs yesterday to rally on behalf of national forests and public lands. It was one of several events across the country, organized by the National Wildlife Federation and Wilderness Workshop. Local speakers ranged from an outdoor marketing firm, to the hunting and fishing community, and a local rancher. The crowd was encouraged to make their voices heard next to "Cardboard" Cory Gardner, a stand-in for the real senator who was invited but did not attend the rally. KDNK's Raleigh Burleigh has the first story.

The second story features KDNK's Amy Hadden Marsh and National Wildlife Federation's David Ellenberger, talking about the rally and public lands protection.

Last year, the Carbondale-to-Crested Butte Trail was placed on a list of 16 priority trails as part of Governor John Hickenlooper’s Colorado the Beautiful Initiative. Part of that trail would go up the Crystal River valley to the top of McClure Pass. Wilderness Workshop hired biologist Rick Thompson to study the impacts of possible Crystal Valley trail routes on local wildlife. Thompson presented the results of his study this week at two meetings, one of which was at Carbondale’s Third Street Center Tuesday night. KDNK’s Amy Hadden Marsh has this report. You can find Thompson's study and a video of the presentation by clicking here.

Pitkin County wants to build part of the Carbondale to Crested Butte Trail up through the Crystal River Valley.

Last fall, the Bureau of Land Management canceled 25 natural gas leases in the Thompson Divide. In February, SG Interests, which held 18 of those leases, filed suit to challenge that decision. The judge has not made a ruling on SG's complaint. But, now, conservation group Wilderness Workshop and Pitkin County have filed a separate suit. KDNK's Amy Hadden Marsh has more about why this suit and why now.
