Shue appointed to BLM Council


Craig resident Dona Shue has been appointed to the 15-member Northwest Resource Advisory Council of the Bureau of Land Management.

RAC members represent a broad range of interests including environmental, local government, and commercial activity on BLM land.

Shue will represent the interests of wild horse and burro groups for the Northwest Colorado RAC, which advises the Grand Junction, White River, Little Snake, Kremmling and Glenwood Springs BLM field offices.

A Northwest Colorado resident for the past 26 years, Shue is the president of the High Planes Mustang Club and has adopted horses from the BLM's Wild Horse and Burro program.

Seedling trees available through program

Each year, the Colorado First Conservation District in cooperation with the Colorado State Forest Service Nursery enables farmers, ranchers and rural landowners to obtain trees at a minimal cost.

The program's aim is to encourage landowners to plant new forests, establish effective windbreaks to reduce erosion, protect homes, cropland and livestock and to enhance wildlife.

A few of the seedling trees available through the district's seedling program include: Cotoneaster, Caragana, Currents, Lilac, Woods Rose, Cottonwood, Poplar and several Pine species.

They come in bare root and potted varieties and cannot be resold.

The trees and shrubs are meant for conservation benefits only. Ornamental qualities such as color, degree of flowering, fruit production and others are not guaranteed.

Call 824-3476, ext. 101, or stop by the conservation office, 345 Ranney St., to pick up an application or for more information.

Deadline to order is mid-April, with trees to be delivered to the office in May.
