Local writer Genevieve J. Villamizar is a regular on For Land's Sake. This month, she shares with Bill Kight her role as Artemis Ambassador through the National Wildlife Federation. This involves fostering community among girl and women anglers, archers, hunters and conservationists.

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.
