Gunnison Sunset

Colorado Backcountry Hunters & Anglers is throwing a weekend festival on Colorado Public Lands Day (May 19th – 21st) and we are bringing public land champions from across the state to the I Bar Ranch in Gunnison for the biggest public lands party of the year! Talented local bands, great sweepstakes prize packages, vendors, bonfires, onsite camping, food, beverages, and camaraderie are all on tap for this event. This event isn’t just about having a great time. Participants and sponsors will help to remove around 5 miles of barb wire fence to improve habitat connectivity for wildlife. Join us and let’s demonstrate the power of the public lands community and our commitment to our wildlife resources.
