SLVEC sees a legislative opportunity to designate an additional 110,000 acres of Wilderness within the lower reaches of Sangre de Cristo mountains, as well as the Great Sand Dunes National Park (GSDNP) and Preserve and the Baca National Wildlife Refuge. Within the Rio Grande National Forest there lies a half-mile wide ribbon of land located just south of the existing designated Wilderness.
