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!
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 stop in Winnemucca at the Ridley's will be available for any last minute snacks/meal items.
