Wildlife in Lowry

By There are no tags 0 comments

Most who live in suburbia don’t expect to see wild animals however they are not that uncommon especially as they are pushed out of their natural areas by more development.

Here are a few things you can do to make your yard less friendly for them.

  • Keep pet food put away and never leave it outside
  • Never feed wild animals, if you do feed birds (which is not advised) keep bird feeders high up and make sure they are as squirrel proof as possible.
  • Keep pets indoors, or under close supervision when outdoors
  • Make sure trash is stored in proper containers with a lid
  • Keep property tidy and rubbish cleaned up
  • Install motion detection lights, which can also deter other unwanted activity
  • Clean up any fallen fruit

If you do encounter a wild animal such as a Coyote

  • Remain calm and don’t your back or run
  • Be really loud, yell and clap your hands
  • Get really big
  • Keep your pet on a short leash
  • Pick up small pets or small children so there is no temptation from the coyote to go after them

If you have more questions or concerns look at https://cpw.state.co.us or call 311.

Donate your old towels

By There are no tags 0 comments

This month at the Montclair Rec Center, Lowry Recyclers are collecting towels for the St. Francis Center (2323 Curtis), a wonderful day shelter that has showering facilities for Denver’s homeless. But they are always in need of towels, and your old towels are just fine! There’s a big box in the lobby the Rec Center at 8th and Ulster in Lowry and during operational hours, they will be happy to take your unmatched, got-tired-of-them towels of any size (regular bath size are the best). The box will be there throughout the month of July and will be continually emptied with towels laundered and taken to the shelter.

Park Use Permits

LCMA-owned parks are private property for the use of LCMA members, Lowry residents and their guests only.In an effort to inform the community and the public and to better maintain LCMA Park Rules, new signs have gone up in every LCMA-owned park. The LCMA has also implemented a requirement to obtain a Park Use Permit for groups larger than 15 and has published a Park Use Calendar on the LCMA website.
