Students invited to participate in poster contest
Students in grades 1-8 are invited to participate in the Highlands Ranch Veterans Day poster contest. Kids are encouraged to show their appreciation for our nation's veterans by designing an original piece of art.  
 
This is an opportunity to have a discussion with family, friends and classmates at school about Veterans Day and the heroism and courage displayed by veterans from all branches of the military. Then use that discussion to guide your art, whether it is a painting, drawing, watercolor or other type of medium. The only rule is the entry should not exceed 11" x 17" in size.

All posters submitted will be featured in a photo gallery on the Metro District's Facebook page. The top finalists' posters will be displayed at the James H. LaRue Library. The winner in each category will be recognized during the Highlands Ranch Veterans Day event on Nov. 11 and will be presented with a prize.

Does your yard attract coyotes?
 
Have you seen a coyote in your yard or your neighborhood? Metro District park rangers will meet with you to perform a coyote home audit. They will walk your yard with you and go through a checklist identifying ways you can help reduce the likelihood coyotes will be attracted to your yard.
 
The Metro District and Colorado Parks and Wildlife encourage residents to take steps to eliminate coyote attractants from your yard and participate in hazing efforts to minimize conflicts with coyotes. For a list of hazing suggestions, click here.
