Crow Management

Crow Management in the City of Nampa

The primary goal of the Crow Management effort is to provide information and educate the community about the crow population in Nampa.  Our staff, with the help of our community volunteers, will act as a resource for our residents and the Nampa business community concerning crow nuisance issues.

The Crow Management Advisory Committee will meet monthly, as needed. Additional meetings will be scheduled related to addressing specific nuisance concerns. 

Our Crow Management Program will focus  on:

  • Education
  • Data Collection
  • Providing Expert Resources Through our Volunteers
  • Information on Proper Cleanup
  • Education and Efforts on Crow Displacement
