State endangered-species public meeting at DOW room

       A 6:30 p.m. meeting July 26 in the Division of Wildlife (DOW) classroom at 4255 Sinton Road is part of the public review process of the state's Comprehen-sive Wildlife Conservation Strategy related to endangered species.
       According to a DOW press release, the goal is to create - for the first time - a nationwide approach to wildlife conservation. “The current draft draws largely upon assessments by panels of species experts queried this past winter and spring about the species of greatest conservation need in Colorado, the threats to their habitats, and the possible conservation actions that could counter those threats,” the release adds.
       “We're sure that others have additional information about species and their habitats that they can contribute to this Colorado strategy,” said Gary Miller of the DOW's Wildlife Conservation Section. “We're especially hopeful that this round of public input will generate new, creative ideas from a wide range of interests.”
       A copy of the draft plan is available online at:
       Other statewide public meetings will be July 25-28 in Denver, Grand Junction and Durango.
