    Default Attn: All Denver Area Retriever Trainers

    I am passing along what was sent to me and would like all concerned retriever trainers to read and take action:

    ______________________________________________

    To All:

    This what we have been working toward for over a year. Water and land to train on in the Metro Denver area. We are urging everyone that can attend the open houses. Dress nice and wear a orange or camo hunting cap. Please spread the word to all your dog training friends. We need a strong turnout. Call me with any questions. 303-956-1115

    Thanks, Brian Bowles

    Public Comment Sought in Process for Cherry Creek and Chatfield State Parks Dog Training Areas

    LITTLETON - The dog training areas at Chatfield State Park and Cherry Creek State Park, created for training dogs used in hunting, have become popular with other dog owners as off-leash areas for walking and exercising their pets. Both areas have become crowded and the sport dog owners have been displaced.

    The heavy use of these areas by dog walkers has also lead to public safety issues, natural resource damages and conflicts with other users.

    The managers at Cherry Creek State Park and Chatfield State Park have developed a three-phase process to assess, plan, and implement a revised management strategy for the areas to protect the public, the resources, and minimize user conflicts. The overall goal is to develop a plan that is sustainable and results in a safe, high quality experience for all park visitors while protecting the natural resources.

    The assessment phase, including scientific studies on wildlife habitat, water quality and natural resources damage, has recently been completed. Before the managers at both parks begin the next phase, which involves developing management alternatives, they are seeking public comment on the resource assessments.

    To review the different studies and surveys, visit www.colorado.gov/parks, go to the Cherry Creek State Park page, http://parks.state.co.us/Parks/cherrycreek, or the Chatfield State Park page, http://parks.state.co.us/Parks/Chatfield, and link to the dog training area process. Please provide us your comments on the assessment phase of the process at: dogtrainingarea.process@state.co.us

    In addition, each park has scheduled an open house so the public may ask additional questions or talk with a staff member. There will be no formal presentations. The Cherry Creek State Park open house will be held Monday, July 27, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Cherry Creek High School west cafeteria. Chatfield State Park's open house will be held on Tuesday, July 28, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Visitor Center. See the parks' websites for the addresses, additional information and directions.

    The public comments and other information will be used by park management to draft several management alternatives for the future use of the two sport dog training areas.

    Throughout 2009, Colorado State Parks is celebrating its 50th anniversary as a leader in providing opportunities for outdoor recreation, protecting the state's favorite landscapes, teaching generations about nature and partnering with communities.
