Colowyo Mine: protecting the Greater Sage-grouse in Colorado

While Colowyo is best known for providing fuel to Tri-State’s Craig Station, it has recently been honored for its commitment to environmental preservation and conservation by Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW). Many types of animals call the land owned by Colowyo “home,” including; herds of elk and mule deer, pronghorn, endangered fish, bald and golden eagles, sandhill crane, large carnivores, and hundreds of Greater Sage-grouse and Columbian Sharp-tailed grouse.
