Travis Duncan CPW Statewide 303-866-3203 x4607 Grand Junction resident is first to complete Colorado Parks and Wildlife's State Parks Passport Program GRAND JUNCTION - The first person to complete Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s State Parks Passport Program said she saw the program on a television commercial, but didn’t think much about it until a week later when she was out with her husband fishing at Vega Lake at Vega State Park. Grand Junction resident Dianna Unitt said she took a break from fishing to go over to the Vega State Park visitors center and grab a passport. Dianna said she got her passport stamped at four state parks near Grand Junction, and that’s when she knew she wanted to visit them all. “We thought, this will be fun, let’s do it,” she said. “We have a Colorado map on our wall and we put little thumbtacks in each one of the state parks and fish hatcheries so we could see what we were working with. Then we divided it up into smaller day trips.” Dianna and her husband Chuck loaded up their cabover camper with their two shih-tzus Buddy and Hutch and hit the road. “We camped wherever we wound up for the night,” she said. “Going from state park to state park, you know there’s a campground at the end of the road and you’ll have a place to stay. It was September and October so the colors were just absolutely magnificent. It was the perfect time to do it.” Dianna started collecting stamps in her passport on September 10, but after she got 10 parks completed, her husband Chuck decided he would like to participate as well. After Dianna completed the passport program on October 26, the couple revisited the parks and hatcheries (again!) that Chuck had missed so he could get his passport stamped. Chuck finished the program on November 11. “All of the rangers were just as excited as we were when we came in to get our stamps - especially the last ones,” Dianna said. “They were really excited to see the stamps and see that somebody had finished it … Toward the end it kind of became a quest. If there was nobody in the visitors center, we sat there until somebody showed up. We were not going to leave the visitors center without that stamp.” Ready to start your own adventure? Head to a state park or hatchery near you to pick up your passport. With 58 colored pages, the passport booklet offers insight into each park and hatchery and allows visitors to collect stamps at every location. Each stamp is unique and represents a significant feature of that site. Once you have visited a new location, you will be able to use your passport to record the date, as well as your favorite part of the visit.   As you make your way around Colorado, different prizes will be awarded as you reach new milestones. Once you have received your last stamp, make sure to have a park or hatchery representative certify the back page of your passport. You will then be able to send in a photo of your passport to collect your completion prize. Please visit  cpw.state.co.us/Passport for further instructions on completing your passport and a list of available prizes. ### CPW is an enterprise agency, relying primarily on license sales, state parks fees and registration fees to support its operations, including: 41 state parks and more than 350 wildlife areas covering approximately 900,000 acres, management of fishing and hunting, wildlife watching, camping, motorized and non-motorized trails, boating and outdoor education.

Don’t stand under the beggartick with anyone else but me By Darcy Mount Senior Ranger Cheyenne Mountain State Park COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Recently, I was reading a field guide for native plants and the thought struck me: who comes up with the common names of plants like spikenard, beggartick and duckmeat? We come across odd plants all the time in our parks and I like to know a little about them. So the biologist in me decided to do some research. The first plant I investigated was seasonally appropriate: the mistletoe. Did the scientist who first identified this plant happen to stub her toe during the Cuban missile crisis and then she spelled it wrong? How did they come up with mistletoe? Turns out mistletoe is a common name for several types of damaging parasitic plants that impact a variety of tree species. According to Colorado State University’s website, there are six species of mistletoe in Colorado with five of those being dwarf mistletoes. The dwarf varieties look nothing like the holiday version we are used to seeing with its large leaves and red berries. The only “true” mistletoe in Colorado only grows on Juniper trees. Dwarf mistletoe is native to forests from Alaska south to Central America and is a small branching parasite that can be greenish to yellow/orange and are about 6 inches long. They cause severe damage to the tree by causing abnormal growth and produce a tangled mass at the point of infection, which is called a “witches’ broom.” They have a very sophisticated way of dispersing their seed. In late summer the seeds mature in the female plants, pressure builds up and with a small disturbance the plant explodes its seeds into the air at an impressive rate. The seeds can land 30+ feet from the original host tree. This process can infect large stands or even an entire forest. The only natural means to stop the infestation is fire. Mistletoe will eventually kill its host tree or shrub whether by infection or by making the tree more susceptible to other diseases or pests. When the host dies so does the mistletoe. It is thought that Mistletoe became a holiday symbol because it was one of the only small plants to remain green in the winter. The tradition of kissing under the plant came from the red berries, which was a sign of reproduction. Kiss under the mistletoe but keep it away from your pets. It’s toxic. Now for the fun part, its name. Having thought that the little plant grew on bird poop, the word for dung “mistel” and twig “tan”, basically a plant growing on poop.  Misteltan was morphed over time into mistletoe. While the bird poop was a coincidence more than a necessity to the plant, the name stuck. Just think about that when you pull your significant other under the mistletoe for kiss, you are standing under a parasite named after poop. Maybe in a later article we can address some of the other names. Since I work for Colorado Parks and Wildlife, I probably ought to investigate duckmeat.

The staff at the park wants all its friends in the community to stop by its open house, scheduled 1-4 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 14, at the AHRA Visitor Center, 307 W. Sackett Ave., in downtown Salida. The event is free and attendees will enjoy wildlife-themed activities and holiday refreshments. Of course, park staff wouldn’t miss the chance to offer activities and a learning experience. Children are invited to solve a "whodunnit" mystery. They can investigate tracks, hair and skulls. Or they can build a birdhouse, peek at owl pellets or listen to a story or two in the reading corner. Adults and children can enjoy a special presentation by amateur geologist Bob Hickey, AHRA's favorite hike leader. District Wildlife Officer Kim Woodruff will lead a fishing lure and spoon-making activity. And be sure to sign up for the free raffle drawing for your chance at a basket of goodies. This event is sponsored jointly by Colorado Parks and Wildlife and the Greater Arkansas River Nature Association (GARNA), The open house also is a great time to shop the AHRA Gift Shop. Looking for the perfect gift for the outdoor enthusiast in your life? Our gift shop also is full of clothing, books and other unique gift items that will be on sale at a 10 percent discount on GARNA merchandise. Gift certificates  also will be available. For more information call AHRA at 719-539-7289. ### CPW is an enterprise agency, relying primarily on license sales, state parks fees and registration fees to support its operations, including: 41 state parks and more than 350 wildlife areas covering approximately 900,000 acres, management of fishing and hunting, wildlife watching, camping, motorized and non-motorized trails, boating and outdoor education.

With the 11 awarded grants this year, over $4 million has been allocated to help improve trails and access to public land across Colorado. The vision of Governor Hickenlooper’s Colorado the Beautiful Initiative is that within a generation, every Coloradan will live within 10 minutes of a park, trail, or vibrant green space. The Colorado the Beautiful Trails Grant Program works towards this goal by increasing access to public lands for Coloradans and visitors alike . “Colorado's outdoor spaces, trails, and recreation opportunities are why so many people choose to live and play here. These trail grants expand access to trails and outdoor spaces, create new opportunities for outdoor recreation and help connect more Coloradans with nature,” says Nick Dellaca, CPW state trails program manager. “These projects will help take us a step closer to connecting every Coloradan to a park, trail or open space.” The Colorado the Beautiful Grant Program is a partnership between CPW and Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) . Prioritizations for awards include connections to existing outdoor recreation opportunities, regional trail connectivity, proximity and benefit to local communities, wildlife and natural resource mitigation, collaborative partnerships and approach, and community health benefits. This year’s largest award, to the City and County of Denver, was funded with Land and Water Conservation Fund dollars. To learn more about this year's Colorado the Beautiful Grant Program awards, please see the descriptions below. Methodist Mountain Trail System - $269,951 to Salida Mountain Trails: This grant to Salida Mountain Trails will help to complete the BLM Master Plan for the Methodist Mountain Trail System. Overall, the project will see construction of 6 miles of non-motorized trail, reconstruction of 5 miles of a mixed-use non-motorized and motorized trail, a new trailhead with 20 parking spaces, and new trail signage, gates, and trailhead kiosk. The project will add (for the first time) two connections to the iconic Rainbow Trail and one to the City of Salida.   Lunch Loops Connector Trail - $400,000 to the City of Grand Junction: In collaboration with 8 other funding sources, the Lunch Loops Connector will construct two bridges, four low-water crossings, 1.5 miles of concrete path, and other trailhead amenities. This project will connect 75 miles of single track dirt trail to the City of Grand Junction. In addition to impacting over 120,000 visitors per year, the trail will provide underserved local communities safe access to the Lunch Loops Trail System.   Peaks to Plains Trail Phase 2 - $500,000 to Clear Creek County: Ultimately connecting Loveland Pass to Denver, the Peaks to Plains Trail will be adding .75 miles of concrete trail in the Clear Creek Canyon. With this new segment, trail users will be able to travel 4.5 miles along the Clear Creek from the Big Easy Trailhead in Jefferson County to this new segment around Tunnel 6 in Clear Creek County. Activities along the creek include running/walking, cycling, fishing, photography, rafting, gold panning, and environmental education.   LOVA Trail - New Castle to Canyon Creek - $500,000 to the Town of New Castle: This new section of trail in the Lower Valley will add 1.65 miles of trail along the south side of the Colorado River with a bridge, rock mitigation, and an underpass to connect New Castle to Canyon Creek. Currently, bikers must navigate the busy freeway in order to travel from New Castle to Glenwood Springs. This trail will add to safety in the region as well as recreation potential as it connects with the Rio Grande and Glenwood Canyon Trails.   Stage and Rail Trail - $205,400 to Chaffee County: As part of a larger 70-mile route from Leadville to Salida, proponents in Chaffee County will construct 1.9 miles of asphalt path to better connect Buena Vista to Johnson Village. The project will improve community pedestrian and cycling safety in addition to adding signage to enhance navigability, access, and education along this section of the Stage and Rail Trail.   Palisade Plunge - $527,000 to Mesa County: The Palisade Plunge Trail is a community effort led by groups within the Grand Valley. With the help of the Western Colorado Conservation Youth Corps, this first phase will construct 13.5 miles out of a total 33.8 miles of single track trail. The whole project, with its length, vertical relief, and unique terrain will make it a destination single track trail fueling tourism and economic development to the region. The project will also rework the existing paved path near N. River Rd. and US Hwy 6 to connect existing trail networks.   Legacy Loop - Rock Island Trail - $500,000 to Colo Springs Parks, Rec & Cultural Services: The project is set to add .62 miles of concrete trail and a gravel shoulder to the entire length of Rock Island’s “missing gap.” When complete, the Rock Island Trail will provide an east-west connection with the “spine” of the community’s urban Legacy Loop trail network giving thousands of families safe trails access to parks, neighborhoods, and schools. Additionally, this project will add an ADA accessible trail connection to the Shook’s Run trail, two bridge underpasses, retaining walls, signage, and wayfinding.   Fremont Pass Recreation Pathway - $600,000 to Summit County Open Space Trails: The Fremont Pass Recreation Path is an envisioned trail that will connect Copper Mountain in Summit County to Leadville in Lake County along the Top of the Rockies National Scenic Byway. This phase of the project comprises a 3.3 mile long paved multi-modal trail that bypasses a dangerous, narrow section of State Highway 91 that is currently used by cyclists. In addition to meeting ADA standards, this project will include a light penetrating elevated boardwalk through a wetlands area and a 260 ft bridge crossing Highway 91.   Heron/Heller/Carpio-Park Phase 1 - $750,000 to City/County of Denver - Parks and Recreation: In support of Phase 1 of the Heron Pond/Heller/Carpio-Sanguinette Master Plan, this project will construct .8 miles of concrete trails, .5 miles of multi-use trails and a trailhead parking area, providing loops to amenities within the park and connecting the underserved Globeville neighborhood with the South Platte Regional Trail System. In addition to accommodating “wheeled” recreation such as biking and rollerblading on this 80-acre property, the park will include educational opportunities around the natural ecology of the area.   Great Western Trail - $250,000 to Great Western Trail Authority: Joining 3 miles of trail previously completed in 2014, this project will take another 7 miles of abandoned railway corridor and turn it into a crushed-gravel recreational trail connecting Eaton to Severance. With its completion, the Great Western Trail will connect to the Front Range Trail via the Poudre River Trail and will provide a unique trail experience as it passes through rural agricultural lands.   Envision Recreation in Balance - $99,367 to Chaffee County: Born from the larger county-wide Envision Chaffee County community visioning program, the Envision Recreation in Balance program will develop sustainable solutions to balance rapid growth in outdoor recreation with watershed health protections by tracking and managing unplanned growth and impact issues. In addition to supporting a Recreation in Balance Task Force made up of 10 local land managers and businesses, the program will provide four deliverables including a Recreation and Natural Resource Atlas, a Recreation Impact Monitoring System, Rapid Response Projects, and a Balanced Recreation Plan.   Since 2000, CPWs Trails Program has distributed over $105 million for trail grants and capital improvements that benefit year-round trail use.

The staff at the park wants all its friends in the community to stop by its open house scheduled 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 15, at the Visitor Center. Entry is free to the event and attendees will enjoy hot chocolate and special treats by the fire. Of course, we won’t miss the chance to offer activities and a learning experience. Kids can create a special craft to take home after a fun visit with Santa. There will be a trivia wheel game, a geocaching experience and an ornament giveaway (while supplies last). Take a self-guided mystery hike to learn how animal residents of the park adapt and thrive even during the winter months. The open house also is a great time to shop for the perfect gift for the outdoor enthusiast in your life. Shop our fabulous Art in the Park display featuring amazing creations by a local artist. The park’s gift shop is full of clothing, books and other unique gift items that will be on sale at a 25 percent discount. Gift certificates are also available. No park pass is required for guests parked at the Visitor Center during this event. All vehicles beyond that point will require a park pass. Cheyenne Mountain State Park is located at 410 JL Ranch Heights Road, south of Colorado Springs, off of Colorado Highway 115. From the city, take Nevada Avenue south, which becomes Colorado State Highway 115 to JL Ranch Heights Road opposite the Main Gate 1 entrance to Fort Carson. Programs are free unless otherwise noted. Except for those attending the open house, vehicles entering the park must have a valid State Parks Pass – $7 daily or $70 annual.

Critical monitoring flights already are underway in the mountains as biologists count and categorize deer, elk and bighorn sheep. Then, beginning Dec. 15, biologists will launch similar helicopter flights to study deer and bighorn sheep in the southeastern plains of Colorado to the east of I-25. “These flights require quick maneuvering at low levels and expert piloting,” said Brian Dreher,  Southeast Region senior terrestrial biologist. “The helicopters definitely generate curiosity.” CPW biologists inventory thousands of animals statewide to develop a picture of the productivity and composition of big game in Colorado. The data is used to form population models, management strategies and to set future hunting license numbers. Disturbances by the flights typically only last a few minutes in any one area. “The flights can cause a short-term inconvenience, but they provide long-term benefits like healthy wildlife populations and productive hunts in the future,” Dreher said. “It's vital we keep track of how our big game populations are doing so we can effectively conserve them.” Already, biologists are flying over Fremont and Chaffee counties and will work north of U.S. Highway 50, through Lake County. Then the biologists will fly in south through Pueblo, Custer, Huerfano and Las Animas counties. The eastern flight plan calls for helicopters to tour along the South Republican River drainage from Flagler to the Kansas state line. Then the helicopters will turn south into Kit Carson and Cheyenne counties followed by tours of Kiowa, Prowers and Baca counties. The helicopter surveys will conclude with flights along the Arkansas River from the Kansas state line to Colorado Highway 71 and southwest along the Purgatoire River. If the weather permits, CPW biologists hope to conclude their flights east of I-25 before Christmas. Helicopter surveys west of I-25 could continue into early January.

CPW staff conducted a survey of that bighorn sheep herd, spreading teams out across eight different locations looking for rams, ewes and lambs from Golden to the Continental Divide. CPW monitors the state’s bighorn twice annually, once in the summer and once in the winter to gauge how many lambs survive their first six months as well as to calculate the ram to ewe ratios. The winter is the preferred survey time because the rams, ewes and lambs all congregate together in lower elevations during this breeding season, referred to as the rut. “Bighorn herds are surveyed to monitor productivity, general abundance trends, distribution and disease,” Wildlife Biologist Ben Kraft said. “This allows CPW to manage towards the herd's objectives, which are set in consultation with the public. The surveys that are conducted in Georgetown today, have been occurring since 1992.” So you see, this is a longstanding practice of the state’s biologists monitoring its wildlife and thus, a lot has been learned through these efforts to help conserve the animal that disease and unregulated hunting almost wiped out in the early 1900s. Disease can take a toll on Colorado’s bighorns. One historical example of drastic disease impact took place in the Kenosha and Tarryall Mountains. Historical literature states these mountains had the largest sheep herd in all of North America - reportedly in the 2,000-3,000 range. Today, both the Kenosha and Tarryall herds range in size from 40-60, so disease can cause an all-age die-off.  “Disease is a major concern because it may lead to respiratory illness throughout a herd,” Kraft added. “This can result in a large proportion of the herd dying and the absence of lamb recruitment for a very long time. In a worst case scenario, entire herds have been lost because of disease. Researchers are still trying to understand which ‘bugs’ and environmental conditions lead to all-age die-offs, but the mechanism of disease introduction into bighorn herds is co-mingling with domestic sheep and goats.” That is just some of what has been learned through these surveys over the years, which take place in a variety of ways. However, many of Colorado’s bighorn sheep populations live in remote, rugged areas with limited human access, making this information expensive and time consuming to collect.  A lot of miles - many of them of the steep variety - are hiked by CPW staff, but the use of aerial drones and helicopters help from above on many surveys. Whether surveys are conducted in the air or on the ground depends on funding and environmental conditions. The Northeast Region team of CPW wildlife biologists has plans for eight bighorn surveys this winter. The Southeast has 11 on its docket and the Southwest has eight. All are aimed to take a look at what is an estimated statewide bighorn population of 7,000 animals. The current affairs among Colorado’s bighorn sheep is that the state’s herds are healthy and in check. That is thanks to the efforts of many constituents dedicated to conservation of the state’s wildlife. “The persistence of bighorn herds is a community effort by landowners, local and federal land managers and CPW,” Kraft said. “When I see the robustness of bighorn in Colorado, I know that a significant amount of forethought and effort has gone into managing Colorado's habitat and appreciate the natural landscapes that Colorado has to offer.” Location of bighorn surveys in the Northeast region of Colorado: Poudre Canyon Big Thompson Canyon St. Vrain  Georgetown Waterton Canyon Greenland Other well known bighorn herd locations across Colorado: Tarryall and Kenosha Mountain herds Mount Evans/Grant herds ​ PHOTOS: Above:  CPW wildlife biologist Lance Carpenter sits on a ledge in Waterton Canyon watching a bighorn ram on Friday, Nov. 30. Photo courtesy Colorado Parks and Wildlife / Jason Clay.
