Oil and gas lease sale

Mountain bikers and black-footed ferrets won't be
pleased with this news: The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reported today that land on the Grand Junction side of the Bookcliffs will be auctioned in an oil and gas lease sale in May. The 45,721 acres in Mesa County include popular mountain biking trails. In Moffat County, 119,000 acres have been marked for development as well, including part of the Wolf Creek Management Area, where nearly 200 endangered black-footed ferrets have been released since 2001.
