Wildlife Management in the Pikes Peak Region


Wildlife Management in the Pikes Peak Region

Why are some of the Deer wearing collars? Are they trying to make a fashion statement? * Do Bighorn Sheep kick the kids out of the herd when they grow up?  Or do they hang around eating their parents out of house and home?  * Was that a Moose I just saw? I thought moose only lived in Alaska!  * What do you mean that’s a mountain lion? Just looks like a big kitty-cat to me!  * Do Bears really steal picnic baskets? How do I get the bear cubs to stand still for a picture?  Why does that Bear have two earrings?  * I didn’t think deer grew that big! It must be a horse, but why does it have antlers?

Regardless of whether you grew up in the mountains or you’re a newcomer, we’ve all heard (or had) questions like these. Join Wildlife Officer Tim Kroenig as he talks about the wildlife, and their management, in Teller County and the surrounding Pikes Peak region at the February Pikes Peak Historical Society Chautauqua. Officer Kroenig will also speak about the role the Colorado Department of Parks and Wildlife plays in this management. He will offer guidance about living peacefully with our ‘wild’ neighbors along with insights into their lives.

Hikes for Your Health


Is getting more exercising one of your New Year’s Resolutions? Do you enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking or snowshoeing or would like to try? Do you enjoy visiting national parks?  Have you ever considered a national park area as a place to get healthy? On Sunday, January 24, Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument will begin a “Hikes for Your Health” series.
Hikes for Your Health will run every Wednesday and Sunday from January 24 to Wednesday, March 16, 2016.
These ranger-led hikes will vary in length from 2 – 5 miles. Depending on conditions, the hikes may either be on foot or by snowshoe.  Participants must provide their own snow shoes and safety gear such as layered clothing, appropriate footwear, water, food. It is recommended to check with your physician before beginning any fitness program.  Participants must be 10 years or older. Four or more participants must be present for the program to run. If there are less, participants may hike on their own.  The fee for the program is $5.00 per adult (16 years or older) or free with one of the many federal land passes.
The first hike will begin at the visitor center at Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument at 10:00 AM on Sunday, January 24 and will go on the Sawmill Trail (2.3 miles).
