Colorado Parks and Wildlife is offering youth and novice hunters an opportunity to participate in an organized, upland bird hunt at the Basalt State Wildlife Area on Sunday, Sept. 9.

Participants must possess a hunter education card, and must purchase a 2012 small game license prior to the event. Anyone 16 and under must be accompanied by a parent during the hunt.

Small game licenses can be purchased at any Colorado Parks and Wildlife office, online at wildlife.state.co.us, or by phone at (800)-244-5613.

Activities will include a firearm safety refresher, shooting practice with clay targets and an introductory pheasant/chukar hunt.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife, working with co-sponsor National Rifle Association, will supply shotguns and ammunition. Participants may bring their own shotguns. However, only 12- and 20-gauge ammunition will be supplied. Personal guns must be inspected by a wildlife officer before the hunt.

Participants are encouraged to wear appropriate footwear, expect sudden weather changes, bring a sack lunch, insect repellent and any other necessary supplies.

Space is limited. To reserve your spot and get further details, including times and directions to the location, contact Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s office in Glenwood Springs at 947-2920 before Sept. 9.

Join Roaring Fork Conservancy on Tuesday, Sept. 11, at 7 p.m. at the Hotel Colorado in Glenwood Springs for a discussion of the Colorado River Cooperative Agreement (CRCA). After years of negotiation, Western Slope Colorado River stakeholders and East Slope entities, including Denver Water, recently finalized this landmark agreement that will determine much of the future planning and uses of the Colorado River water. The presenters will include three local water attorneys who have actively been involved in this agreement: Peter Fleming (of the Colorado River Water Conservation District), Mark Hermundstad (Lower Colorado River representative), and Karl Hanlon (Middle Colorado River representative).

This free event is underwritten by Roaring Fork Conservancy and Karp Neu Hanlon, P.C., Backbone Media and SGM. More information is available at http://www.roaringfork.org/events.
