WE ARE MORE THAN JUST FUNDRAISING
The Colorado Chapter is more than fundraising. That is a huge component of what we do, but the great thing about raising money is getting to SPEND the money on conservation projects such as habitat for Colorado Moose; Humanitarian projects like the Sportsmen Against Hunger program where we collect meat and food and donate on an ongoing basis to a dozen food banks and shelters; and the Education arm of our chapter where we are very active in the Archery in the Schools program. These are just a sample of what we do with the money we raise.
God Bless our Men and Women in uniform and we thank all of you who have done so in the past.

Imbued with a vibrant spirit, Parker McMullen Bushman is a positive force for inclusion and conservation in the outdoors. As the CEO and Founder of Ecoinclusive, an online resource forum, Parker works to connect underrepresented communities with nature by providing invaluable resources to leaders and organizations. Additionally, Parker works for the Butterfly Pavilion as the Vice President of Community Engagement, Education and Inclusion.
“We want our work to be relevant to the lives of everyone in our community. When we think about the shifting and changing demographics in our society, we start to understand that a part of being relevant is about keeping up with those changes,” writes Parker.
Parker points back to Ken Voorhis, her mentor through the Association of Nature Center Administrator’s mentorship program, as an inspiration to her as a young leader. Parker often had trouble seeing herself, a woman of color, in a leadership role as so few leaders in her field looked like her. Because of Ken’s willingness to have very real conversations about race and inclusiveness in the field of environmental learning centers, an incalculable difference was made in Parker’s life.
Her leading work aiding environmental organizations in building a culturally diverse staff to reflect our culturally diverse world is indispensable.

Do you have a number for information?
No more leftover draw! Now you have to compete with everyone else in a second draw. That's the worst change to the big game hunting regulations I've seen in 30 years of hunting in Colorado.
Habitat and small game license must be purchased by anyone who walks into a park right.. not just hunters. Besides a few dumb a$$es hunters pay for everything done.
Do hikers, mountain bikers, tubers, photographers, boaters, and others have to purchase a $10.00 habitat stamp this year or is it still just hunters and fisherman being targeted?
Just hope they dont make us non residents but the useless smallgame license just to get a preference point again. If so they will start losing ALOT of business
Waiting for mine in the mail, very curio8s about youth non resident elk,
Gee I'd love to,but I cant afford to play this new game.This new system spits in the face of all us longtime point savers.
When will they make other licenses available ie qualifying license before March 1 so you don’t have to try to cram it all in one month
I’ve been trying to get my picture on that cover for so long now 😂
Spring bear season please
Maybe, if they start drawing more residents. Seems like too many nonresidents get selected.
Yass!! Getting Excited!!!
I’m ready lol
Yep. Mine came in the mail already.
on what page is the high country early rifle mule deer 'explanation' pls?
Curious why the Bear w Caps options were eliminated?
Is it fall yet
What a bs way of getting more application fee money. Add a secondary draw. Just keep milking us.
Jason Bates the brochures are available.
When can applications be submitted?

Black History Month is a great opportunity to highlight and celebrate black leaders in the outdoor community who are fighting for conservation and working towards making our spaces more inclusive.
Over the next couple weeks, we will be sharing their stories, the ways they are bettering our communities and what inspires them to blaze new trails. Stay tuned.

Thank you. Looking forward to those posts. 👍👍
This is great, thank you!!
Or we could just do it year round and drop a lable that puts anyone in a "bracket" to be labled but you know, that would be to progressive yet
This is really neat and long overdue! Looking forward to seeing more. I am sure a certain demographic will get over themselves while others embrace and appreciate what you are doing!
This is awesome! Excited to see what's in store!
White achievement month...
Indian history month!!!@
When do others get their own special month?
Honestly, super excited to see this and I hope this will be continued for Hispanic (15 Sept -15 Oct), Asian Pacific American (May), Native American/American Indian (Nov) History/Heritage months! Considering that access to public lands and safety has been a noted problem by POC engagement in public lands and conservation. Recognizing the POC engagement in our public lands is an attempt to bring recognition to groups not commonly considered in outdoor recreation communities but are in fact very present. Groups like HECHO in Denver and Latino Outdoors are very active with bringing public land access to these groups. For everyone saying why are they highlighting one groups engagement, it is specifically what you are trying to say: They are just trying to normalize and recognize all groups who use our parks! Some fast facts for y'all who are gonna say something :Black engagement in visits to national forests are at 1% of total visits. LatinX visits comprise 6% from surveying by the federal government. However in other polls, the engagement is actually much higher visiting National Forests and lands. www.fs.usda.gov/rmrs/recreating-color-promoting-ethnic-diversity-public-lands www.outsideonline.com/2296351/were-here-you-just-dont-see-us
Thanks for sticking to your guns.
When is White history month, Asian history month, Hispanic history month, Native Americans history month, etc. I thought we were all equal! Why pander to one race or the other? This is why we are divided in this country.
When is white history month
Mexican history month!!!@
Wolf Update 🐺: Our biologists have received notification back from a genetics lab confirming that four scat samples collected near a scavenged elk carcass in Moffat County in early January came from wolves. This is the first official documentation of a pack of wolves in Colorado since the 1940s. Of the four samples, DNA results indicate three are female and one is male. We’re still waiting to receive results back from scat samples collected at another potential wolf sighting in Moffat County on January 19.

Would like to applaud the work of Parks and Wildlife. Appreciate the thoughtful and science based approach they use to managing the important wildlife herds in the State. Great resource and form of recreation. We should all be appreciative.
Omg! They’ve been here for years. Jackson, Grand, and Routt counties. Perhaps if the CPW would do their due diligence we could put this “reintroduction” to bed.
Scavenged. Tell it like it is. Wolf killed elk carcass is the reality. Colorado you are only in the infancy of this non essential wolf experiment. No need to expedite the ungulates decimation process. The wolves are already at it. Vote NO on 107. ballotpedia.org/Colorado_Gray_Wolf_Reintroduction_Initiative_(2020) follow the money. You are in an uphill battle.
I am glad that we have an adequate environment for them to thrive in, and that we now won’t have to re introduce them. Nature is moving forward on its own.
So validating for the people who had sightings and weren't believed
In the early 80s a friend and I spotted a wolverine in Colorado reported to a DOW officer he said that it was probably a coyote or a fox but I know what we saw.
People be aware that you have chosen to live in the animals home. Be alert when your out and if you don't want them around go back down the mountain where you won't be where the animals are. we that have chosen to live with the wildlife understand they are wild and we are to always be alert in there environment.
Here come all the crazy wolf comments. If you’re a native and enjoy the back country, then you KNOW wolves have unofficially already been in Colorado for a VERY long time. It was a don’t ask, we don’t need to create a policy for years if not decades. I think between the wolf reintroduction bill and social media, CPW could no longer ignore the issue. Nature was been quietly expanded her own system of management quite well on her own and perhaps instead of interfering we should just let her continue!!!!
I hope you increase your enforcement presence in that area before this pack gets poached.
For all the psycho hunters threatening to kill them. This is YOUR future. Wolves are an endangered and PROTECTED SPECIES
Looks like we are about to find out what it feels like to be hunted. Thanks for nothing CPW
This is exciting news. I hope people will leave them alone and let the wolves do their job. Keeping wildlife in check
All the years we've been asking "Does a bear sh*t in the woods?" Looks like we won't have to keep asking the same question about the wolves! Since we now know how many male and females there were...can we show what all they are eating? Elk, cow, sheep... #vegan #whatsavegan #iwonderwhattheytastelike
To Patrick: My house borders Rocky Mountain National Park near the Wild Basin entrance, I hope this qualifies me to have an opinion on this subject to such a small man as yourself. A thriving population of elk and deer?? Have you been to Estes Park? Those herds could use some natural culling to be sure, instead of rangers sneaking in the dead of night to do the job. Yeah, the wolves have just ruined Yellowstone haven't they, you mullet. I hope you cannot reproduce either (along with Kelly and David) and proliferate ignorance. 😎
Awesome....the more wildlife the better. Maybe they can help cull the elk and deer herds. Nature has a plan 😉
After decimating the Yellowstone elk herds they’re working 😞😞 their way down to Colorado
I saw one in Grand County last year. Same thing they said probably a Coyote. It looked like a Wolf to me. Much much larger. Glad they are back and protected. I hope
I saw a white wolf pass in front of me at 4pm in early part of 2019. In Estes on 34 near the Stanley Hotel. I was shocked. I knew then they are here. People are either denying there here or just haven't seen them.
I’m glad they’re here now just let nature take its course no need to bring in outsiders
Welcome back wolves!! We are so happy to have them in Colorado again.
They have been in the state for years. CPW really needs to pay attention. I know for a fact several people have reported to them over several years that wolfs where here and they always said that its not true and never looked into it. The reintroduction to the state is pointless since we already have them and have for Years.
Oh boy, the usual suspects are here telling us all those sightings were just really big coyotes...
Really!!!! Found tracks on my property 2years ago everyone I talked to has known they’ve been there for a long time. Just getting more and more populated which will become a major problem very soon.
Hopefully this ends the debate on "reintroducing" Artic wolves into our area, since the Timberwolves that should be here, obviously are.

A glimpse into the life of two owl families 👀
The burrowing owl is the only owl in North America that nests underground (in prairie dog burrows in Colorado). Because they are active during the day, they are one of Colorado's most viewable owl species. Our avian researchers are learning how our management programs can be used to benefit owls and other species that depend on prairie dogs.

I love them Wild at Heart, where I volunteer, has a great program for relocating these little beauties to new homes Check out the Wild at Heart website@
Excellent. Do more
Funny little creatures - they make me smile
Have never seen them before. So interesting. I do see thousands of prairie dogs in the front range.
I have seen several of them around always a great treat.
When I lived near Hudson, CO there were a few different groups of burrowing owls. They were as curious with me as I was with them and as long as I kept a decent distance they would stand up near the burrows and watch me.
Rhyann Lowrey Thought you would like to see this.

I have been hunting all my life but I love this series! Great refresher during the off season or when wanting to try something new. 😁
Not interested, thanks, anyway.
We as hunters need to get the parks out of wildlife, they are screwing up the hunting like they did before, They messed up so bad that the state had to take parks away from wildlife. Now we as hunters are having the same problems just because parks go bankrupt and needs the wildlife division to get them out of the red.
Just another day in the life of our Wildlife Managers.

What could be better than fishing all year long? Even more time on the water.
New for 2020: Annual Fishing Licenses are valid for 13 months. Starting March 1 they can be purchased at any Colorado State Park, CPW Office or online at cpwshop.com. ... See MoreSee Less
How do I sign up for a Hunter's Safety class? I wanna go hunting.
Is there a late tax tacked on? If it sounds to good to be true it probably is.
So if they are valid for 13 months do I still have to buy a new one to apply for big game? Even though mine is still valid?
Happy to say that my Co. Fishing License is good for my lifetime.
Would I be able to pick one up from non-CPW stores that sell licenses on 3/1 too or just through CPW?
That's smart. Give people that overlapping month to get renewed.
The SCI Chapters of Colorado are committed to educating voters that they’re not biologists and to vote NO on introduction of wolves via this manner.
During today’s SCI Board meeting roughly $140,000 was raised in support to defeat the introduction of wolves ballot initiative in Colorado. — this is just a beginning. Attend ours and other chapters fundraisers to help our state and leave wildlife management to the real biologists.
The Colorado Chapter donated $50,000 to the effort. We are also auctioning off a British Columbia wolf hunt at our dinner with all proceeds going to the fight. Our dinner is March 14– come support us and be active in Colorado conservation!! ... See MoreSee Less
The numbers are in!
On the morning of Feb. 3 at Barr Lake State Park, a bald eagle count was conducted. A total of 116 bald eagles were seen in a 5-minute scan (53 adults, 63 immatures). Pretty neat, huh? ... See MoreSee Less
Simply amazing!!! I saw three in Parker the other day and almost drove off the side of the road! That is the most I have ever seen all together. Usually it is just a solo eagle.
This was in our field today. Must have been a bald eagle kind of day!
What great news. A friend in Minnesota shared their counts and the spread of nesting areas has been huge over the past decades. Last Sunday, our beautiful warm day, I was playing golf in Fort Collins and was lucky enough to enjoy a bald eagle circling overhead. That alone was worth it, since playing golf with snowbanks and ice patches messes up ones score. 😀
It's all fine and dandy until we have so many birds of prey other wildlife suffer and are threatened extinction . I suppose it makes a difference what location you are from but in our location Eagles, Hawks and other Birds of Prey are very much taking over and over abundant. Even directly in cities. Be careful what you wish for!!
We love to watch them at the ranch. We had one fly in front of the pickup once with a large walleye. The eagle couldn’t hang on to it and dropped it. We ate the fish for lunch. 😀
We have several pairs in Platteville as well..I’m always so excited to see them..so majestic
That’s Awesome!! I’ve seen a couple of them flying around in Golden and at Crown Hill Lake in Lakewood. Such beautiful birds.
That’s great ! What made it successful ?
We don’t see them here so I enjoy your eagle posts ever so much!
I love to watch the Balds. I got to photograph 3 juveniles last year from the same nest, the day before flight school.
So glad to know that. I saw one in Windsor, Colorado last week. It was a youngster.
Most I've seen was 27 in Olathe Colorado when they were migrating back in 1990.
That's incredible! They keep finding dead ones here. In July of 2019, the Game Commission reported 300 mating pairs in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. However, someone shot one last year as well
Beautiful!! We should go bird watching!
Cool! I believe I saw one in fort collins in the morning the other weekend!
Ive been seeing them on my way home. Beautiful!!!!
Sherry Marcotte much more popular in my area. I'm glad you finally got to see one. Just the other day I saw one perched beside the road on a fence post... Magnificent.
David Oeser had such a love for Eagles. He would have enjoyed this story...🦅🦅🦅
Saw 3 yesterday, pretty cool
This makes me SO happy!!!! So blessed to have seen many in my life! One of the most beautiful wild things on earth❤️🦅
One flew over my head today at Highline LSP 👍🏾 a big one...it looked like an adult! Huge!!!!!! 🦅
That is absolutely wonderful.
live a few minutes from here and it has been amazing they fly all over and we say MERICA! ❤️
I thought I had been seeing more of them of late. That's so cool.!
Heading to Barr Lake next week. Can't wait.

To be used to irradicate the plague in the prairie dogs so they can sustain on their own?
I remember those lines. They kept getting longer every year.
Stop wasting money on species that doesn’t generate income to the DOW. Spend it on species that do.

You don't need ALL the bells and whistles, but you really should have at least one whistle.
You also need to vote NO on wolves so the wolves don't kill all the wild horses of Western Colorado along with the elk population, the easy to kill moose, and the deer.
Been trying to break into hunting now since 2013. Done classes, done mentored hunts, tried to get in with hint group, done applications for women afield - all of it to no avail. Discouraging to say the least.
