Commissioners will receive briefings on a variety of issues including updates from the Departments of both Natural Resources and Agriculture, Great Outdoors Colorado, and Colorado’s Wildlife Habitat Protection Program.
Informational updates include discussion on big-game license allocations, moose research, strategic planning, finances and Conservation Leaders for Tomorrow workshop participation, along with presentations from Mancos and Navajo State Parks.
The CPW Ranger of the Year Award presentation is also slated.
The only action item is an update to chapter five of the wildlife regulations for 2015 waterfowl and migratory bird hunting seasons and related provisions.
A complete agenda can be found at: http://cpw.state.co.us/Documents/Commission/2015/Aug/AGENDA.pdf
The Commission meets regularly and travels to communities around the state to facilitate public participation in its processes.
The next commission meeting is scheduled for September in Craig. The remaining 2015 commission meetings will be held in November (Wray) and December (Pueblo).
Anyone can listen to commission meetings through the Colorado Parks and Wildlife website. This opportunity keeps constituents informed about the development of regulations and how the commission works with Parks and Wildlife staff to manage the parks, wildlife and outdoor recreation programs administered by the agency.
