From the Associated Press via The Denver Post:

The Blanca Wetlands area in southern Colorado got the designation [Area of critical environmental concern], partly for its playa and marsh habitats containing large populations of water birds, amphibians, macroinvertebrates and 13 threatened, endangered or sensitive species. The BLM plans to hear from the public Wednesday in Alamosa as it seeks input to guide an environmental analysis of potentially enlarging the Blanca Wetlands area of critical environmental concern.
