Getting the On-the-Ground Response
With years of experience working on public lands, energy, and recreation resource issues, Mountain West Strategies can provide research and analysis, strategic planning, media development, stakeholder relations, and the campaign management to create effective community-based action.
Among Mountain West Strategies early efforts was helping to lead the Roan Plateau Campaign. We also provided strategic direction and coordination for the Hidden Gems Wilderness Campaign, and coordinated a broad range of conservation groups around a Colorado-specific roadless rulemaking for National Forests.
Mountain West Strategies was instrumental in preparing analysis and technical detail, developing strategies, and orchestrating tactics that stopped oil and gas leasing in Colorado’s premier organic and sustainable farming region in 2012 and 2013.
Since then Mountain West Strategies has worked with local, rural stakeholders to develop a community alternative for a local U.S. Bureau of Land Management land use plan, and has done additional work with campaigns building alliances in agricultural, rural, and western Colorado communities.
