Result: 250,000 acres protected

Colorado Environmental Coalition led the effort to secure Wilderness protection for 250,000 acres of Rocky Mountain National Park’s backcountry, 94 percent of the park. This success concludes an effort that started in the 1970s, and now gives the park the Wilderness status it deserves.
