Depending upon the time of the year, residents of Forest Lakes Subdivision can many times cross paths with bears, deer, mountain lions, etc. On several fronts, this can be both an awesome experience to many and possibly a little terrifying for others. La Plata County developed a “Living with Wildlife Advisory Board (LWAB)” that advises La Plata County Commissioners on methods of preventing and resolving wildlife conflicts that occur within the County. As the wildlife/rural interface increases, so do the cost and potential for wildlife conflicts. Want to learn more about what LWAB does and what you can do to help minimize these wildlife conflicts? Please review the letter from the LWAB and we invite you to visit the County’s website about this valuable program: https://www.co.laplata.co.us/services/agriculture/living_with_wildlife/index.php.
