WOODLAND PARK, Colo. - As part of an effort to update bear management plans, Colorado Parks and Wildlife is seeking public input on bear management plans for the Woodland Park area.

Wildlife managers are soliciting input on how to maintain healthy bear populations while reducing bear conflicts. The meeting pertains to bear management plans in Park, Fremont, Teller, Pueblo and El Paso Counties.

The meeting is at 6 p.m. July 24 at the Woodland Park Library.

"Colorado's wildlife belongs to all Coloradans," said wildlife biologist Julie Stiver. "We manage wildlife based on science and research, but public input is critical in helping us arrive at the best possible plans. We strongly urge Coloradans to participate in managing their wildlife."

Final bear management plans will also consider input from various land management agencies.

Citizens who attend the meeting can learn about the current and historic status of black bears around Pikes Peak and areas to the south and west. Wildlife managers will solicit public input on future objectives and management strategies, including trends in population size. Hunting will be the primary tool for meeting agreed-upon population objectives.

For more information, contact Stiver at 719-227-5225 or

WHAT: Black Bear Management Meeting
