Local Control in a Federal West

Should communities have more authority over federal lands in their backyards? Do federal land and wildlife laws invite collaboration or confrontation?

High Country News brings local experts together to discuss issues affecting life in our own backyard: oil and gas development and the listing of the Gunnison sage grouse. Is there room for collaboration between local and federal agencies and the land and communities they serve?

Saturday, June 6
7:00 - 8:15 p.m.
The Paradise Theatre
215 Grand Avenue
Paonia, CO 81428

Panelists include:

    • Robbie LeValley, rancher and Delta County administrator
    • Eric Sanford, SG Interests
    • Jim Ramey, Citizens for a Healthy Community

    • Sarah Sauter, Western Slope Conservation Center

Join us afterward for a refreshing ice cream social - sponsored by Ollie's Ice Cream Shop and Revolution Brewing - where you can meet the panelists, and HCN staff and board members.
