While I know we are still all getting caught up in our lives, after lending two consecutive weekends to the BF Prairie Dog Project, we had a delightful event today. Our project made the paper, (no photos within the Internet version), we have a delightful front page photo and article in the Saturday edition of the Valencia County News Bulletin.

A big thank you to all who attended last Sunday. It was a long 10 hour , hot day for all of us. Thank you again to Prairie Dog Pals for a hard days work and for all of the continued relocation work.
A few highlights of the day, talking to many locals who are clear PD advocates and talking to locals who are not PD advocates and have valuable experience with trying to control populations. (It is always good to hear all sides to an issue) 2. Getting the remaining PDs captured out of the field next to North Bosque Loop RD. 3.Having kids join us for part of the day. 4.Gaining a real love for ice. 5. Sharing the day with friends doing a task that provides a community service. 6. Hearing the PDs in the field next to us chattering at us and telling them, "We are coming for you." 7. Knowing that even though we did not get them all, some of them are being moved to a better home.
