Colorado BHA: Chapter of the Month (May 2017)

It would seem the great state of Colorado has it all: a slew of fourteeners, the most elk of any state in the union, giant mule deer—and a team of butt-kicking BHA volunteers. The Colorado Chapter is full of super active and passionate leaders working hard to represent BHA, educate sportsmen and protect our wild public lands and waters. Here's the short list of great accomplishments, but if you want to learn more about the outstanding work they’re doing, go to the Colorado chapter page.

  • CO BHA board member Adam Gall gave a presentation on the value of public lands at Colorado Parks & Wildlife’s Partners in the Outdoors Program 
  • CO BHA coordinated two separate shooting range clean-up days on BLM and USFS lands in honor of Colorado Public Lands Day
  • David Lien published a slew of op-eds in defense of the Antiquities Act–part of a broader effort that led Rep. Tipton and Sen. Gardner to follow Sen. Bennet’s lead in publicly issuing a statement urging the Trump administration to maintain protections for Canyon of the Ancients, which is currently under review
  • George Robison coordinated CO BHA’s 3rd Annual Wild Game Cook-Off, raising more than $1,500 for CO BHA

And some forty CO BHAers are planning to attend the annual chapter rendezvous and campout during the first week of June, which will include Habitat Watch Volunteer training coordinated by Central West Slope Regional Director Craig Grother and Habitat Watch Volunteer Program Coordinator Don Holmstrom.
