Wilderness Workshop has joined a lawsuit challenging the drilling of more than a hundred natural gas wells near Paonia.



The Carbondale-based environmental group joins five other organizations representing farmers, property owners and recreationalists in opposing the Bull Mountain oil and gas development. They contend that the Bureau of Land Management did not fully consider the project's impacts.

The proposed wells are 30 miles northeast of Paonia, within the headwaters of the North Fork of the Gunnison River.
