Denver (AP) Colorado environmentalists are applauding the inauguration of President Barack Obama, hoping he’ll reverse what they see as the wrongs of his predecessor.

More than 50 members of environmental groups gathered at a downtown Denver restaurant to watch the inauguration on big-screen TVs Tuesday.

They clapped and said “yeah!” When Obama talked about “restoring science to its rightful place.”

Elise Jones of the Colorado environmental coalition says she hopes the Obama administration changes what conservationists believe has been a practice of putting development ahead of all other uses of the west’s public lands.
