Hidden Gems maps available at Summit County libraries

Detailed maps depicting the Hidden Gems Wilderness Proposal for Eagle and Summit counties are available to the public at local libraries.

The package of large maps includes an overview of the entire proposal and close-up depictions of the individual proposal areas.

The Hidden Gems Wilderness Campaign printed and distributed the maps as part of its public outreach. Comment sheets and information sheets about wilderness designation and the proposal are also available.

Members of the public may check out the maps at library front desks during regular library hours at the following branch locations:

• Main Branch, Summit County Commons, 0037 County Rd. 1005, Frisco.

• North Branch, 651 Center Circle, Silverthorne.

• South Branch, 504 Airport Road, Breckenridge.

The information is also available online at http://www.whiteriverwild.org.

The Hidden Gems Wilderness Proposal for Summit and Eagle counties was submitted to the Colorado Congressional Delegation on March 31. It seeks wilderness designation for just more than 243,000 acres of public lands managed by the White River National Forest and Bureau of Land Management.
