The 2012 Sage Grouse Winter Census has been scheduled for Saturday, February 18th 9am - noon. Craighead Beringia South conducts an annual sage grouse count in Jackson to census the health and size of our local sage grouse population. Volunteers are needed to cross-country ski and snowshoe across the southern half of the valley.
If interested in volunteering, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
- Names of people in your party
- Skiing or snowshoeing?
- What level of activity you are comfortable with (low = .5-1 mile, medium = 1-2 miles, high = > 2miles)
Sage Grouse populations in our valley and nationwide have been declining for some time and there is a need to census these populations accurately. In order to accomplish this, Craighead Beringia South biologists have devised a new census technique that has proven very effective in the past few years. With the help of people like you, we have skied and snowshoed all of the areas in which sage grouse reside during the winter and counted all of the grouse seen. And its that time again!
Groups and individuals are encouraged to participate.
