The Northwest Colorado RAC meets quarterly in northwestern Colorado. It is one of several citizen advisory councils to BLM Colorado. Its 15 members are appointed by the Secretary of the Interior and represent a broad range of public land interests, including environmental, local government, wild horse and burro, and commercial activity.
Beginning with this meeting, the NW RAC now has authority under the Federal Lands Recreation Enhance-ment Act to make formal recommendations on specific recreation fee proposals for BLM areas. Specific information about the two proposals to be considered at this meeting is available at: www.blm.gov/ co/st/en/BLM_Resources/racs/nwrac.html
