Silver City, NM, June 2, 2020 -For Immediate Release. The Gila National Forest received a report of a bear encounter in a dispersed camping area near the CDT trail off Forest Road 150. Wherever you are on the forest, you are sharing space with a variety of wildlife; including bears, mountain lions, deer, elk and many other species.

As grasses and water sources dry out, prey animals, such as deer and elk, move from the higher elevations to lower levels searching for forage and water, and this brings large predators looking for food and water as well.  Your safety, and the welfare of the wildlife population, are important to the Gila National Forest and to the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish (NMDGF).

The Mimbres Culture Heritage Site had planned to open this weekend, but due to the Governor’s message last week, museums are to remain closed. As businesses and other public places are slowly opening with restrictions each week, we suggest you phone ahead to make sure the museum is open and that there is a tour the first and third Saturdays of the month.   

Call 575.536.3092 or 307.640.3012 to confirm tours and museum access. Also you may check our Facebook page or website www.mimbrescultureheritagesite.org for updated information.

Those new to providing news releases to the Beat are asked to please check out submission guidelines at https://www.grantcountybeat.com/about/submissions. They are for your information to make life easier on the readers, as well as the editor.

Classifieds: We have changed Classifieds. Check periodically to see if any news ones have popped up. The former software failed us, so it's just a category now, with prices posted. Send your information to editor@grantcountybeat.com and we will post it as soon as we can. Instructions and prices are on the page.

Images: We have received complaints about large images blocking parts of other articles. If you encounter this problem, click on the title of the article you want to read and it will take you to that article's page, which shows only that article without any intruders. It's a software problem, not easily fixable, other than showing fewer articles per summary page. If you are a frequent visitor, you might not mind fewer articles per page, but if you only come once in a while, you likely want to see more articles to browse. Write me at editor@grantcountybeat.com to let me know your feelings on this issue.
