Reminder for Saturday Trash Clean Up

REMINDER FOR THIS SATURDAY JUNE 12 Annual Buckhorn/Stove Prairie Road Cleanup. We will meet at Station 3 on Rist Canyon Rd, just above Stove Prairie School across from the Larimer County Road building. Please try to car pool as we don't have much parking and we'll need to go down to Stove Prairie to park to start our trash pick up.

The time to meet for picking up your safety vest and receive instructions will be 9 am and we will end at 12 noon. Then we'll go to Ohana Ranch for our lunch!

Be sure to wear appropriate footwear and work gloves to pick up items. We will supply the bags and reflective vests. Our Wonderful Firefighters will lead the way at the beginning and end of the event to ensure our safety along the road.

To reward you for all your efforts we will have a delicious Bar-B-Que lunch, complete with hamburgers, brats, salads, and all the fixin's. This will be at Ohana Ranch.

Please contact Louise Creager at 970.217.6843, to let us know you plan to attend so we know how many vests we need. We will have extras if you happen to wake up and feel this is a great day to come help out.

Don't miss this opportunity to help clean up our beautiful community. Thanking you in advance for your participation.

Warm Regards, Louise Creager 970.217.6843

Found: Two Female Shepherd Mixes

Two beautiful Shepherd mixes with intense blue eyes came to WOLF late afternoon on 5/22. They were exhausted, so we have set them up in the enclosure in front of the cabin. The girl with brown smells like she might have lost a battle with a skunk. They are both really sweet. If you know who these two sweeties are, please call WOLF at 970-482-2056 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. They have collars but no IDs. Pictures below.
