In January, Dana Wilson was named the new associate district manager for the Bureau of Land Management's Southwest District, based out of the Montrose Public Lands Center. The Southwest District includes about 2.6 million acres of BLM lands within the Grand Junction, Uncompahgre and Tres Rios Field Offices.
Previously, Wilson filled several short-term positions within the Southwest District, gaining valuable insight of BLM's public lands in western Colorado. Prior to moving to Colorado, she was the lead public affairs officer with the BLM California State Office and a legislative and public affairs specialist for the BLM in Washington, D.C. She also brings land use planning experience to her new role, having worked as a planning and environmental coordinator for the BLM's Eugene District in Oregon.
Delta Volunteer Fire Department (DVFD) will be holding its annual fireworks show at Confluence Park on Wednesday, July 4, having received approval from Delta City Council at the council's June 5 meeting.
The DVFD has 28 volunteers and expects to have eight to 10 firefighters from Cedaredge join them this year.
