Prairie Dogs Are Our Pals!
This week we had Prairie Dog Pals visit Coronado Historic Site to educate visitors about the importance of the cute creatures. Over 30 visitors attended a nature walk guided by Ranger Ethan Ortega, and many more visitors listened in on a presentation that described prairie dog life. Prairie Dog Pals is a 501(c)3, non-profit charity whose mission is preserve the species and its environment and to provide information and education about prairie dogs to the public. Prairie Dog Pals has been helping to care for prairie dogs in the city. To ensure their survival we provide supplemental feeding in barren areas. We also capture and relocate prairie dogs where loss of habitat or human conflict threatens their existence. CLICK HERE to learn more about Prairie Dog Pals and their goals and missions.
