Local Sage Grouse Working Groups to meet in Jackson and Pinedale in March
March 5th meeting in Pinedale
by Wyoming Game & Fish
February 26, 2015
Two sage grouse local working groups based in Jackson and Pinedale will be holding meetings to consider recommendations for updating the Wyoming Sage Grouse Conservation Plan’s core area map. Each working group’s recommendations will be passed along to the statewide Sage Grouse Implementation Team who will then make recommendations to Governor Matt Mead.
• Upper Snake River Basin Local Working Group: March 4, 1:00 p.m. in the Jackson Game and Fish Office.
• Upper Green River Basin Local Working Group: March 5, 8:00 a.m. in the Pinedale Game and Fish Office.
Anyone proposing a change to a core area boundary should provide the local working group with maps and/or written descriptions with a rationale of their proposals in advance of the meeting. These documents should be emailed to: email@example.com.
Each local working group will be discussing additional topics at their respective meetings, which are open to the public.
There are eight such local working groups statewide. Each is composed of citizens representing various stakeholder groups interested in sage grouse conservation and associated land management issues.
The local working groups develop and initiate conservation plans to benefit sage grouse and, when feasible, other species that use sagebrush habitats. Learn more about sage grouse, the local working groups and their management plans at: http://wgfd.wyo.gov/web2011/wildlife-1000817.aspx# .
