Plight of the Sage-Grouse: Biology meets Botany in Oregon’s High Desert
Stu Garrett will share his long-running fascination with Oregon’s iconic Sage-Grouse. If you haven’t seen the magnificent male grouse strutting, puffing his chest and fanning his spiky tail feathers to attract females during breeding season, link here (www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-AwAzmKJls) to watch a one minute ODFW video of this spectacular display, taken in Malheur County sagebrush country.
We will learn about some of the historical events that have led to the condition of the ecosystems we see on the High Desert today, and, with dramatic drops in our grouse populations across Oregon in recent years, we will consider some of the changes that might help the Sage-Grouse survive.
