Boulder County’s Parks and Open Space Department will host a Dec. 18 meeting on prairie dog management on county-owned properties.

At that meeting, set for 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Ron Stewart Parks and Open Space Building, 5201 St. Vrain Road, west of Longmont, county staff will discuss this year’s prairie dog management activities and the challenges presented by prairie dogs moving onto agricultural lands the county leases to farmers and ranchers.

Officials said no changes are being proposed to the county department’s Prairie Dog Habitat Element of the Grassland and Shrubland Management Policy, which was adopted in October 2012 and last updated in February 2016.
