The Browns Canyon National Monument was established by presidential proclamation under the Antiquites Act on February 19, 2015.  The monument covers an area of 21,604 acres of scenic and diverse natural resources along the upper Arkansas River of Colorado and encompasses both the BLM and the U.S. Forest Service (FS) lands. Browns Canyon National Monument includes the Arkansas River Special Recreation Management Area (SRMA), the Browns Canyon Wilderness Study Area, the Browns Canyon Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC), and U.S. Forest Service roadless areas.  In addition, a portion of the Arkansas Headwaters Recreation Area (AHRA), a Cooperative Management Area along the Arkansas River administered by the FS, the BLM, and Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW), is included.  This project is an effort to develop an interagency cooperative plan, to manage, into the future, the many resources the Monument has to offer.
