The Broomfield Wildlife Masters are local residents that volunteer their time to answer questions about wildlife. They typically respond to about 50 - 70 calls each year. By far the most frequent issues are rabbits, squirrels, raccoons, and woodpeckers. In 2015, voles became more problematic. The Masters put together these handy reference cards that include information on habitat, behavior, possible human-animal conflicts, and suggestions for living with wildlife:
The Wildlife Masters also attend various events such as the Broomfield Trail Adventure, the Garden Fair, National Night Out, and Broomfield Days to provide information and offer residents an opportunity to discuss wildlife issues they may be having.
Access the Wildlife Masters Help Line at 303.464.5554. Leave a message and someone will respond to you within 24 hours.
If you are interested in Broomfield's wildlife and would like to share knowledge with other residents, volunteer for the Wildlife Masters! Volunteers work from home to retrieve and respond to messages left on a voice mail server.
