Join us next week for the first Southwest Region Sportspersons’ caucus of the year. We work hard to be a voice for you, but this is your chance to listen in, ask questions, and let CPW know your thoughts.
DURANGO, Colo. – Sportspersons from across Colorado are invited to Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s Southwest Region virtual caucus meeting with Regional Manager Cory Chick and staff to hear updates regarding angling, hunting and other topics within the region.
The meeting will be conducted virtually from 6 -8 p.m. Monday, Feb. 28. It will be streamed live via CPW’s statewide Facebook page: www.facebook.com/CoParksWildlife.
“We always look forward to hearing from the public about wildlife issues,” Chick said. “Hunters, anglers and landowners can provide us with their unique on-the-ground perspective of what they’re seeing out in the field.”
The caucus will feature Mia Anstine and Roger Cesario, who represent the CPW Southwest Region caucus as delegates to the statewide Sportsperson’s Roundtable.
The featured presentations of the night will come from Jamin Grigg, the senior terrestrial biologist for the Southwest Region. He will present updates on elk and mountain lion studies currently being conducted across the Western Slope.
“We have a number of exciting wildlife studies ongoing here in the Southwest Region, and we’re looking forward to providing some updates to the public,” Grigg said. “The GMU 521 elk project is designed to evaluate elk use of the landscape and how they are responding spatially to hunting pressure. The mountain lion density study is a West Slope-wide effort to radio collar lions in rotating study areas and get better estimates of lion populations across western Colorado.”
Other topics that will be discussed in the caucus include:
- Aquatics update
- The public process on preference points and license allocations
- How the Regional Partnerships Initiative is working to ensure Colorado’s land, water and wildlife thrive while also providing for equitable access to quality outdoor recreation experiences.
- Update on wolves
