From the Durango Herald:

I recently participated in a review of a new report’s release, “The Economic Benefits of Protected Public Lands,” by R Street Institute, a self-described, free-market think tank that supports limited, effective, government and responsible environmental stewardship. The report points to the economic benefits of balancing energy development with recreation on public land; it also examines several communities in the West where nearby protected lands, such as parks and monuments, are driving economic growth.
