IREA cautions customers about new scam targeting small businesses
 
SEDALIA - Businesses served by IREA recently have been targeted by scammers. IREA is informing business owners and customers about these scams so they can avoid falling victim to them.
Many of these recent scam attempts ask business owners to pay up front for new meters as part of IREA's upcoming advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) project. IREA will not ask you to pay for these new meters. You should immediately doubt the legitimacy of any call, email or in-person visit in which you are asked for payment, especially in the form of a "Green Dot" or other pre-paid card. If you are asked for such payment or are unsure of any other interaction with someone claiming to represent or work with IREA, immediately call us at (800) 332-9540.

Fall Color at Fossil Beds 
 
Join a ranger for a fall tradition, marveling at the changing colors of the aspen tree. This ranger-guided hike will be an intimate exploration of smaller aspen groves within the Monument. Local highways in the area will allow you to see larger, sweeping vistas of color.  On this hike you will get to explore these small pockets of golden wonder and learn up close about the aspen tree's natural history.   For example, did you know aspens can reproduce from sucker roots underground?
 
These hikes will begin at the Visitor Center.  They run from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm.  Please dress appropriately for a 1 - 2 mile hike, which would include good hiking shoes, layered clothing, and protection from the sun.  Bring water and snacks.
 
There are no fees for this program beyond the normal entrance fee for the park which is $7.00 per adult (15 and younger are free).  Inter-agency Passes are accepted and also sold in the park.  Saturday, September 22 is National Public Lands Day and is fee free.
