Help keep mail tidy
The CSD is looking for volunteers to help keep the mailboxes looking nice by taking care of their own mail site. They are asking volunteers to help keep postings current on the message board and trash picked up. They have done some repairs and are asking residents to use care when handling the locks, especially on the parcel boxes. They are also asking residents not to put flyers on the mailboxes – use the message boards.
Wildlife in the community
Stallion Springs is home to many wild animals like coyotes, bear, elk and others. For the safety of the animals and the residents;
1. Watch them from a distance. Never approach them.
2. Do not feed the wildlife. Make sure trash is secured and no pet food is left outside.
3. Remove any standing water and water features.
4. Pets and their food should not be left outdoors at night.
5. Bird feeders should not be accessible to other animals.
6. If wildlife becomes aggressive, call the Department of Fish and Game at (559) 243-4005.
7. Remember: This is their home too. Keep the wildlife wild.
There is a fine for fishing without a permit. The 48-hour permits are available at the Stallion Springs General Store or the CSD for $10. Yearly permits are available only at the District Office. Remember there is no fishing from the bridge or on or near the dam.
