BLM to host transportation planning meeting in Mancos

Access to Weber, Menefee areas is on agenda
The 335-acre Cox Ranch south of Mancos was recently put under a conservation easement with the Montezuma Land Conservancy. The land is a critical habitat corridor between Menefee and Weber Mountains, which are both BLM wilderness study areas.

The Bureau of Land Management Tres Rios Field Office is hosting a Transportation and Access Plan open house June 12 to share information about inventoried routes near Mancos, Colorado, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Mancos Public Library, 211 E. First St.

For more than a year, the Tres Rios Field Office has worked with its partners and the public to learn about the inventoried route system in Archuleta, La Plata and Montezuma counties. This input helps the BLM update route inventories and to identify a sustainable trail network when the travel management process begins later this year.

“We’re specifically holding this open house in response to community questions about access to and within the Weber and Menefee Mountain Wilderness Study Areas as well as the Aqueduct Special Recreation Management Area,” said Connie Clementson, BLM Tres Rios field manager
