A $330,000 National Fish and Wildlife Foundation RESTORE Colorado Program grant was recently awarded to Larimer County Department of Natural Resources.

The cross-jurisdictional project offers long-term control of invasive winter annual grasses by treating and eradicating cheatgrass and feral rye by aerial application of indaziflam.

The program will help restore big game winter range habitat.

And, Barbara EJ Bennett, Larimer County Sheriff’s Office Chief Scambuster, alerts us about a new recent scam.

She says law enforcement will NEVER ask you to pay for a warrant over the phone.

Also, they won’t call you to let you know you have a warrant – if you really did – they would just show up!
