We know you like to get out and enjoy Colorado--so here's something to put on your calendar. Western Colorado will celebrate Grand Mesa Moose Day on July 31.
The area has the newest moose population in Colorado, with about 150 moose in the area. "Moose sightings are always fun for people and they're becoming more common on the Grand Mesa as the population grows," said Trina Romero, Colorado Division of Wildlife Watchable Wildlife Coordinator. "This event will teach people safe ways to see the moose and some great facts about moose in Colorado."
Grand Mesa Moose Day events will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the US Forest Service Visitor Center atop Grand Mesa on Highway 65.
