Charlie Meyers may be honored by Colorado DOW

The so-called Dream Stream on the South Platte River could be renamed “Charlie Meyers State Wildlife Area,” according to a recommendation announced by the Division of Wildlife this week.

The Colorado Wildlife Commission will take up the proposal at its monthly meeting Thursday in Denver. The area runs between Spinney Mountain and Elevenmile reservoirs.

Charlie Meyers was the outdoors writer at The Denver Post and worked at The Post for more than 40 years. Meyers died Jan. 5 after a two-year battle with lung cancer.

“You would not believe the number of people who inquired about if we were going to do something to honor Charlie,” said DOW director Tom Remington, who added that the proposal could be ready for final adoption by the end of March.

A date for a formal dedication will be announced if it clears the commission.
