I-70 wildlife migration presentation is Dec. 19

Contact: Adam Palmer, Environmental Policy Planner, 970-328-8734 or adam.palmer@eaglecounty.us

Dec. 12, 2014 – The Eagle Valley Land Trust in partnership with ECO-resolutions will present a study on wildlife habitat connectivity and migration routes across I-70 next week. Eagle County Environmental Health will host the presentation at 1 p.m. Dec. 19 in the Eagle County Room, located at 500 Broadway in Eagle. All interested community members are invited to attend.

Julia Kintsch from ECO-resolutions will discuss efforts to improve connectivity across I-70, including the results of a 2011 study which identified zones where highway mitigation would offer the greatest benefits for wildlife movement north and south of the interstate. Her talk will focus on priority areas identified in Eagle County and how they could tie into county land use planning and management.

Kintsch is an applied ecologist and owner of ECO-resolutions ecological research and consulting, based in Golden. For more information, contact Environmental Policy Planner Adam Palmer at 970-328-8734 or adam.palmer@eaglecounty.us.
