Hi, my name is ______ and I live in ________.

I am calling to express my strong support for the Hidden Gems Wilderness Proposal.

This is truly a community proposal and we are asking you to do the right thing for our future generations and draft legislation to protect the Hidden Gems as federal wilderness.

Wilderness is such an important part of what makes Colorado special. 

(Optional: share your own reasons about why you support the Gems).

Thanks so much for your consideration of this important issue!

Hi, my name is _____ and I live in_______. 

I am calling to ask you to introduce legislation to designate all the lands in the Hidden Gems Wilderness Proposal as wilderness.  

All of these areas are so important for our wildlife and future generations. So much work has gone into the Hidden Gems and the proposal is now ready for your leadership.

Other points you can mention:

 

Wilderness is such an important part of what makes Colorado special. The Hidden Gems would protect over 100,000 acres in Pitkin and Gunnison Counties of important low elevation habitat, and safeguard our wildlife and clean water.

Over the years, the Hidden Gems Campaign has engaged in thoughtful and extensive outreach to all concerned groups, even their opponents, in order to ensure the proposal really is citizen generated.  Even if everybody doesn't agree, everyone has had a seat at the table.


Now that the proposal is complete and it is clear there is broad-based support, it is time to designate the Hidden Gems as wilderness.

 

Please do the right thing for our future generations and introduce the Citizens’ Proposed Hidden Gems Wilderness Proposal to Congress as soon as possible.
