Browns Canyon

Browns Canyon serves an important role in Colorado communities, we need to preserve that.

Protecting Browns Canyon as a National Monument will preserve the place where we can reconnect with our faith and provide our families with a source of recreation and business development.

But as pastors, we also want to see this place protected because we have a moral obligation to do so. Leviticus 25:23-24 says, “The land is mine and you are but aliens and my tenants. Throughout the country that you hold as a possession, you must provide for the redemption of the land.”

Nestled in the Rocky Mountains along the Arkansas River, Browns Canyon is a slice of natural beauty featuring critical habitat for wildlife and an amazing outdoor experience. This is where our congregations can take their children and grandchildren to experience the outdoors and connect with nature. Browns Canyon offers whitewater rafting, fishing, hunting, and hiking opportunities, as well as winter sports. Business owners have joined sportsmen in voicing support for the area to be protected as a National Monument because of the potential economic boost from enhanced tourism.

The White House and Congress should protect these lands as a legacy so these values and these places can be handed down and kept accessible for generations to come.
