'Fishing is Fun' at pond in Walden
WALDEN Lions Park Pond in Walden will benefit from the Colorado Division of Wildlife's Fishing is Fun program.
Through the program, the DOW will help fund a project to construct a two-and-a-half-acre lined pond, a fishing pier, in-lake fish habitat, an access path, land and water purchase, renovation and signage, the DOW reported.
Lions Park Pond is one of nine projects around the state that will benefit from the Fishing is Fun program.
The program is a statewide cooperative effort to enhance Colorado's fishing resources. The program creates a three-way partnership between local communities, Federal Sportfish Restoration Act funds and the Colorado Division of Wildlife.
Geese causing grief on Front Range
DENVER Property owners on the Front Range who want Canada snow geese removed from their property may have to be more proactive about the problem than just calling their local wildlife officials.
After 10 years of relocating the birds from private property, the Colorado Division of Wildlife has said "no more." Now it's partly the property owner's responsibility to deal with the problem.
To provide landowners and managers more flexibility in dealing with Canada geese, the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service approved a permit that gives permission to destroy eggs or nests on private property. Without federal permission, both of these activities are currently illegal.
To get rid of the geese, the DOW also suggests property owners use noisemakers, dogs and scarecrows, or modify landscapes to provide barriers between ponds and feeding areas.
