As area wildlife manager for Montrose since 2006, Renzo DelPiccolo’s responsibilities at Colorado Parks and Wildlife included law enforcement for hunting, tracking poachers, managing wildlife conflicts with bears and elk, public education, and advising land use planners on wildlife impacts. Over the course of a 33-year career at CPW, Renzo considers his work helping create new wildlife areas for permanent protection and reintroducing moose to the Grand Mesa among his biggest accomplishments.
