LAKEWOOD, Colo. – The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) will host a public hearing on two proposed rules—one to list the Mexican wolf as an endangered subspecies and delist the gray wolf elsewhere, and the other to improve recovery efforts for the Mexican wolf in the Southwest –tomorrow evening in Denver.

The public hearing is scheduled to take place from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Paramount Theatre:

  • Paramount Theatre

1621 Glenarm Place
Denver, CO 80202

Doors will open to the public for registration at 5 p.m. The hearing will begin at 6 p.m. and is scheduled to conclude by 8:30 p.m.

There will also be a brief opportunity for reporters to interview Service leadership about wolf conservation prior to the event. Those reporters interested in attending the media should RSVP to:

To learn more about the proposed rules, view the draft Federal Register notice with the details of the public hearings, and for links to submit comments to the public record, visit www.fws.gov/home/wolfrecovery.

Additional hearings will take place on November 20 in Albuquerque and November 22 in Sacramento. Each will include a short informational presentation. The Service has also added a public information meeting and hearing in Pinetop, Arizona, on December 3. The hearings are part of the Service’s continuing efforts to provide an open, comprehensive public process for the two proposed wolf rules and will provide the public a forum by which to register their views.

As a result of delays caused by the lapse in federal appropriations, the comment period deadlines were extended until December 17 to allow this and two other hearings to take place within the public comment periods on the proposed rules.
