How to get stamped

The Dry Fork trailhead is not the only local place where the Colorado Wildlife Habitat Stamp will be required. La Plata County is home to five separate state wildlife areas, and the fee applies to each of them.

The areas are:

• Durango State Fishing Unit on the Animas River near the DOW hatchery;

• Haviland Lake, 18 miles north of Durango;

• Pastorius Reservoir, 10 miles southeast of town;

• Bodo State Wildlife Area, a 7,549-acre area 1 mile south of Durango;

• Perins Peak State Wildlife Area, 6,900 acres just northwest of downtown Durango.

The stamp is included in the price of a Colorado hunting or fishing license. However, for hikers, cyclists or equestrians, the stamp is $10 and can be purchased wherever hunting or fishing licenses are sold; by calling (800) 244 5613; or on the Division of Wildlife's website, www.wildlife.state. co.us.

stamps are free to people under the age of 19 and older than 65.
