CPW to host meetings regarding elk management plan

Colorado Parks and Wildlife is inviting members of the public to a series of meetings about proposed changes in Northwest Colorado’s elk herd management plan.

According to the agency, CPW is evaluating management objectives for 13 of the 15 elk herds in the region, and the open house meetings will begin with a brief presentation highlighting each of the herd units. Attendees will then have an opportunity to provide feedback to CPW staff by visiting various stations set up at the meeting specific to each herd unit. Meetings are planed for Oct. 5 in Walden, Oct. 9 in Hayden and Oct. 11 in Meeker.

The Oct. 9 open house meeting in Hayden will go from 7-8:30 p.m. at the Haven Community Center, 302 S. Shelton St., and attendees will have the opportunity to provide feedback on proposed changes for the E-1 Cold Springs, E-2 Bears Ears, E-6 White River, E-21 Rangely/Blue Mountain, and E-47 Green River elk herds.
