It’s an old conversation, which, like many things, has reached a new height in the era of COVID-19. More and more people are coming to the Gunnison Valley to camp, hike, bike, fish,ride off-road vehicles, and to just be outside. Listen to a conversation with public lands managers on KBUT’s Community Matters. Our guests were Kevin Alexander, Chair of the Sustainable Tourism and Outdoor Recreation Committee; and Matt McCombs, the US Forest Service Gunnison District head Ranger.
