Description:
Shapefile Format –This data set consists of digital data describing BLM National Conservation Lands or National Landscape Conservation System (NLCS) in the State of Colorado. The data set identifies the geographic locations and boundaries of the NLCS lands throughout Colorado. These data represent the polygon features that show the boundaries for the NLCS National Monuments, National Conservation Areas and Similar Designations. Monuments encompass landscapes of tremendous beauty and diversity, ranging from rugged California coastline to vividly-hued desert canyons. The Antiquities Act of 1906 grants the President authority to designate national monuments in order to protect "objects of historic or scientific interest." While most national monuments are established by the President, Congress has also occasionally established national monuments protecting natural or historic features.
