Group Seeks to Protect Wild Buckwheat

Comments Off

According to the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel, environmental groups including the Uncompahgre Valley Association are requesting the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service make increasing efforts to protect the Clay Loving Wild Buckwheat, an endangered plant that grows only in Delta and Montrose Counties. The groups ask that the protected areas for this plant increase to include all of the Gunnison Gorge National Conservation Area. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has reported this plant as endangered since 1984.
