Wind Power & Wildlife Symposium

​​​Post-Meeting Information

The Colorado Division of Wildlife (now Colorado Parks and Wildlife), in cooperation with state and federal resource management agencies, the wind power industry, non-governmental conservation organizations and private landowners, sponsored a symposium and workshop, Wind Power and Wildlife, in Colorado Jan. 23 – 25, 2006. The goals of the event were to:

  1. Make available up-to-date information about the effects of wind power development on wildlife and ways to minimize impacts

  2. Make available information about applicable laws, regulations, and guidance associated with wind power and wildlife

  3. Foster an open dialogue between the wildlife conservation community and the wind industry in Colorado

The symposium and workshop brought together resource management agencies, the wind power industry, consultants, and private landowners to proactively learn about and discuss interactions between wind power and wildlife in Colorado.  Agency and industry personnel, landowners, elected officials, consultants and interested citizens were encouraged to attend.  ​
