Staff Report

“FRISCO — After years of planning and public input, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officials this week said they’ve completed all the environmental studies and a conservation plan for the San Luis Valley National Wildlife Refuge Complex, in south-central Colorado.

“The plan covers about 106,000 acres across three national wildlife refuges: Alamosa, Monte Vista, and Baca National Wildlife Refuges, home to the hundreds of year round resident birds-and an important stop-over location for migratory birds during their long journey between their breeding grounds to north and their wintering grounds to the south. This conservation plan will guide the long-term management for these important and diverse wetlands, riparian areas, playas, and grasslands in the San Luis Valley over the next 15 years.”  Sourced through Scoop.it from: summitcountyvoice.com
