Wolves aren’t yet permanent residents in Central Colorado, even though a pack has been documented in the far northwest corner of the state. Before wolves arrive in the area, the public will have an opportunity to provide feedback, share their opinions, and ask questions.

The Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) and Keystone Policy Center will host a listening session from 5 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, July 22 in Gunnison.

The event will take place at Western Colorado University’s University Center Ballroom, located at 1 Western Way, Gunnison, CO 81231.

The Director of the Natural Resources Program at Keystone Policy Center, Julie Shapiro, wants to hear the public’s input.  “Whether attending an open house in-person, or reviewing information and providing feedback online, we want to hear the public’s input about the Wolf Restoration and Management Plan,” said Shapiro.

Those who can’t attend a listening session in-person can use the Online Open House and detailed Comment Form available on Colorado’s Wolf Restoration and Management Plan Public Engagement Website.

According to a CPW press release, “the online open house and comment form offer the same information, questions and opportunity to submit feedback that is available at in-person public listening sessions that will be conducted throughout the state this summer.”
