July 24, 2015 Santa Rosa Sage Grouse Fence Marking

Join Friends of Nevada Wilderness and the U.S. Forest Service as we work to help protect sage-grouse in the beautiful Santa Rosa Mountains. We will be placing markers on fences for visibility to help prevent sage-grouse from injuring themselves and worse.  Come enjoy the food, the company, and the cause!

Fence collisions by sage-grouse can be widespread and fatal.  According to the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), fence marking can reduce sage-grouse strikes by up to 83 percent.  We are planning to mark areas where known sage-grouse strikes have been occurring and where fences are near active leks. Help us protect this incredible bird!

We plan to leave the office the afternoon of July 24th. Breakfast will be provided both Saturday and Sunday mornings. A stupendously delicious dinner will all be provided Saturday evening after work; by way of Dutch Ovens. Be prepared to bring your dinner on Friday and lunches throughout the weekend. A top in Winnemucca at the Raley's will be available for any last minute snacks/meal items.
