Prairie Dog Relocation Public Meeting in Aurora

Attention Aurora Activists! 

Please join HSUS to support the relocation of prairie dogs due to lightrail.  Details below:

"Join us for a public meeting to discuss the prairie dog relocation, from RTD Light Rail Station at Iliff and I-225, to the 26,000-acre Lowry Range owned by the State Land Board in eastern Arapahoe County.

Agricultural landowners and ranchers have expressed their concern and general opposition for the relocation of prairie dogs within Arapahoe County. This public meeting will explain the rationale for the relocation of a small prairie dog colony, and will address agricultural landowners and rancher’s concerns.

Let’s spread the message that we support this relocation. This isn’t just about prairie dogs, but the animals that thrive on prairie dog colonies, like hawks, eagles, owls, ferrets, fox and badgers. So, if you would call yourself a wildlife conservationist, please attend this public meeting and let’s show the county commissioners they have constituents who care abut healthy wildlife populations for future generations.

RSVP today to voice your support for the relocation of these prairie dogs on June 27 at 6:30 p.m. Contact Lindsey Sterling Krank at [masked] if you have any additional questions."

    So sorry, there is a project I've been working on for months that requires my presence tonight. Please let us know if any additional comments or support is needed after tonight.

    I thought the meeting is with the Aurora City Council? Is this a different meeting at the same time and day about prairie dogs? I am now confused!

      I am not sure, Heather. Best to ask Lindsey from HSUS. I think if you click the link above there is a phone number listed as well.

    Hi everyone! I received this call to action email from HSUS and wanted to post it for our members in the area. I believe it is a show of support, maybe comments. I am not sure of the details. Please email Lindsey at [masked] for details. Thanks!

    Rats...I didn't pay attention it's this Thursday. Not certain I can make it but I'll update asap if I can't.

    Is this a show for support/strength in numbers meeting or is there anything I can contribute? I haven't rehabbed prairie dogs, but this sounds remarkably similar to the issue of gopher tortoises in Florida that we have been (successfully) addressing for years. As a side note, I work for a business that buys the right of way land for projects like this. Fortunately, this isn't our project, or I probably would have a conflict of interest.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
