Longmont is a great place for wildlife because its located where the prairies merge with the mountains. A remarkably rich diversity of wildlife can be seen here.
We work towards the conservation of wildlife resources on open space in a practical and responsible manner. We also manage public lands in response to the effects of urbanization, fragmentation, and increased recreation, and address wildlife conflicts in response to agriculture needs and neighboring property owners. We also:
- Conduct surveys to understand the wildlife resources that exist on open space lands and incorporate the information in management and project planning.
- Work cooperatively with other programs and wildlife agencies to manage, plan and create healthy wildlife habitat.
- Develop public educational programs about wildlife resources and help increase public participation.
