Thank You Wednesday

#Giving Tuesday evolves into Thank You Wednesday and, boy does the CVA have a lot to be thankful for! We are extremely grateful to the Centennial community and supporters, as the preliminary results show that over $8900 was raised for the Valley, which also means we met our match goal!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

October 15th-31st Range Rider Update

Most cattle have moved out of the Valley or are on their way out, so it has become much quieter in the Centennial. Sadly, the Team must wrap up their season in the Valley until next spring, but look forward to returning and seeing everyone’s smiling faces next year! Thank you to all participating ranches, and those of you who reported wildlife sightings. The Team could not have accomplished nearly as much as they did without you!

Here is the final wildlife tracking report for the 2017 season:

October 1st-15th Range Rider Update

Can you believe it’s already the second to last biweekly Range Rider report for the season? As the season comes to an end, the Team is still diligently riding through cattle and tracking wildlife in the Valley, but must say goodbye to Steven, the Wildlife Tracker, whose last day was October 20th. The Range Riders will continue monitoring cattle until October 31st.

September 16th-30th Range Rider Update

Hopefully everyone’s staying warm out there! Temperatures have fallen and the Valley has already received a bit of snow, but most has melted. Participating ranches have begun moving cattle out of the Valley for the winter, but the Team will continue to track and ride through herds until everyone has left or until the weather evicts them!

September 1st-15th Range Rider Update

Red flag warnings have given way to winter storm warnings, so it appears that Fall is underway in the Valley! Bear activity has increased, and there is one potentially wounded bear in the Metzel Creek area. Please be alert and bear aware when recreating or working around the Valley, and always carry bear spray.

August 16-31st Range Rider Update

Archery season is now in full swing for antelope, bighorn, black bear, deer, elk and mountain lion, so please remember to be safe and courteous hunters when out and about in the Valley.  Additionally, for both hunters and non-hunters, with regular red flag warnings, be aware of where you are driving vehicles.  Stay off dry grass that may be ignited by vehicles to avoid starting any more wildfires, and to avoid contributing to the poor air quality we are currently experiencing. Please reference the following photos: One taken in May and one taken as of September 4th.
