CPW Winter Classification Flights

We would like to inform our residents that Colorado Parks and Wildlife will be conducting their annual mule deer and elk classification survey flights soon. These flights are subject to change, but will likely start in the coming week (1/9/22), and last for several days. This involves low flying helicopter operations, and can consequently generate reports and concerns from community members. Please know that these flights help CPW assess herd performance, and they attempt, as much as possible, to minimize both stress to wildlife and disturbance to residents.
