Division of Wildlife Resources to host open house

DWR is partnering with Wild Aware Utah to host an open house Wednesday, Jan. 27 at 6 p.m., at the Sheldon Richins Building, to provide information to residents about living with wildlife. DWR biologists, staff from the Hogle Zoo and Wild Aware Utah will be on hand to discuss living with wildlife, transplant and relocation policies, public and pet safety, moose and elk management plans, predators and feeding wildlife.

Park City Fire District issues notice

The Park City Fire District is asking that residents remember to clear a three-foot radius around fire hydrants during the winter. According to PCFD public information officer Casey Vorwaller, "seconds make a very big difference during fires and it delays us significantly when we have to dig hydrants out of the snow before we are able to get water from them."

Meeting cancelled

The Summit County Council meeting on Wednesday, Jan.27, has been cancelled. The next regularly scheduled meeting will be held Wednesday, Feb. 3, at the Summit County Courthouse, in Coalville.

Volunteers needed

The annual Raptor Inventory Nest Survey is seeking volunteers to become "citizen scientists" for a long-term raptor nest monitoring project to collect data about the nesting ecology of eagles, falcons, hawks, osprey and owls. Volunteers will need to attend training. The workshops will be held Feb. 20 and 27, and March 15, in Salt Lake City. It is recommended that volunteers own a pair of binoculars, a GPS unit, a digital camera and have an email address. Volunteers will be assigned an area to monitor from March through July.
