Southwest Wyoming Sage Grouse Working Group is back to work!

Green River - The Southwest Sage-Grouse Working Group will participate in a meeting Monday, March 18, at the Green River Office of the Wyoming Game & Fish Department, beginning at 9:00 A.M.
The role of the group is to develop and set in motion local conservation plans to benefit sage-grouse and, whenever feasible, other species that use sagebrush habitats.

The group has been meeting since September 2004 and completed a conservation plan that was approved by the Game and Fish Commission in 2007. The Group will be meeting to discuss the Governor's Executive Order for Sage Grouse, as well as other business. In an effort to improve sage-grouse numbers and preclude the need for listing under the Endangered Species Act, these citizens have agreed to work together to identify and help implement appropriate management practices.
The working group is comprised of local citizens interested in sage-grouse conservation. Members represent agriculture, industry, conservation, sportspersons, and affected governmental agencies. There are eight such groups operating in Wyoming.
The public is invited to attend the meeting and listen to the proceedings. The Game and Fish supports the Americans with Disabilities Act. Anyone needing auxiliary aids to attend this meeting should call (800) 843-8096 (in-state only) or 307-875-3223. Every effort will be made for reasonable accommodations.
