Wildlife Requirements for all Construction Sites

Thank you for past efforts to keep your construction site clean. Bear season is upon us already and they are starting to be active. Your help is critical if we are to successfully co-exist with wildlife in Snowmass Village. If a bear can access food at your construction site, it quickly becomes habituated. The bear changes from a foraging bear, to a bear focused on garbage as a food source. Before April 1st, 2020 PLEASE clear construction site of ALL EDIBLE FOOD, DRINK, TRASH THAT SMELLS like coffee cups, cans, Gatorades. PLEASE clear all sites of unsecured microwaves as well. All roll offs must be clear of edible and smelly food, wrappers and cans. Animal Services are still working, and we will be inspecting job sites for any food refuse. No warnings will be issued, we will go directly to citations this year. Questions, please call us, 970.923.5330x242
