Sage Advice: Greater Sage-Grouse Ecology and Conservation

Lecture/Readings

A 2015 decision by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service kept the Greater Sage-Grouse off the Endangered Species list – but what does this mean for their populations, and for the people that live and work in their habitat? Come learn about the ecology of these fascinating creatures and the community based conservation efforts to sustain their populations from sage-grouse experts Dr. Terry Messmer, USU Professor of Wildlife Conflict Management, and Allison Jones, Executive Director for The Wild Utah Project. This event is a collaborative effort brought to you by Swaner Preserve and EcoCenter and the Utah Chapter Sierra Club, Wasatch Back Network.
