Thanks WCCC for Helping Us Improve Sage-grouse Habitat!

Thanks to the Western Colorado Conservation Corps for their work in August 2019 and August and September of 2018 to improve habitat for the rare Gunnison sage-grouse! The young adults helped us to:

  • Install over 45 structures to reduce erosion and improve wet meadow habitat.

  • Removed fence posts plus trees that were encroaching into sagebrush parks. Grouse tend to avoid anything that could be a perch for a hungry hawk or eagle.

  • Marked wire fences to make them more visible to grouse and other wildlife. This reduces collisions that can result in the death of grouse.
