Sea of Sage
Like the greater sage grouse, many species inhabiting the imperiled sagebrush-steppe ecosystem can survive nowhere else on earth. Unique to the western US, 44% of this ecosystem has already been destroyed through human activity. Through wilderness designation, passage of Representative Jared Polis's Continental Divide Wilderness and Recreation Act would provide permanent protection for this important habitat in the Williams Fork area, pictured here.

About The Continental Divide Wilderness and Recreation Act
Daybreak catches Colorado’s Gore Range rising above the sagebrush of the proposed Williams Fork Wildlife Conservation Area. The area is home to the Middle Park population of greater sage-grouse, as well as to elk, mule deer and other wildlife.
Developed in collaboration with hundreds of stakeholder groups and input from thousands of citizens, the Continental Divide Wilderness and Recreation Act seeks to preserve 58,000 acres in Summit and Eagle Counties. Nearly 40,000 acres of of this would be designated as wilderness, ensuring the health and preservation of some of Colorado’s most spectacular peaks and forests in perpetuity.
