BLUE MESA NATIONAL PARK

You are invited!

 

During the month of May, I am presenting photographic work at the Gunnison Arts Center to inspire legislative momentum to create a New National Park in Gunnison County, Colorado. 

 

BLUE MESA NATIONAL PARK

 

Blue Mesa Reservoir is the largest body of water in the state of Colorado.  When full the reservoir is 20 miles long and has around 96 miles of shoreline.  However, for over 50 years, minimal improvements have been implemented to create a more user-friendly recreational area.  Only the lands immediately around the Gunnison river and the reservoir have been established as Curecanti National Recreation Area.  Yet, the animals and their habitat are not protected.  West Elk Wilderness to the north of Blue Mesa Reservoir, Hartman Rocks on the edge of the town of Gunnison and looking south to the Powderhorn and Uncompagre Wilderness regions could all be considered in "Drawing New Lines for a National Park."

 

Please support protecting a diverse and abundant wildlife area and their habitat; 

while creating an enhanced recreational area for people to enjoy this Rocky Mountain Paradise

in Gunnison County, Colorado.

The idea of making Blue Mesa and the surrounding area into a National Park makes so much sense when you look at the size of Blue Mesa and the adjacent area with so much wildlife in that area. I hope it becomes a National Park in order to preserve it and for all to enjoy in the future.
