Colorado will receive some $1.7 million to help cover the cost of a new seven mile trail link of the Rocky Mountain Greenway and improve access to Rocky Mountain National Park and Chimney Rock National Monument.
The Department of the Interior is huge — more than 70,000 employees manage a half-billion acres of public land, mostly in the West. The department does everything from operate national parks to administer Native American social programs and manage wild horses.
