Sage-Grouse, Icon of the West
February 12, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+0
The courtship dance of the greater sage-grouse is known to nature lovers as one of the most impressive wildlife displays in North America. Using extraordinary images, photographer Noppadol Paothong will take you on a journey to the home of these iconic birds, the sagebrush sea of the North American West. The sage-grouse is among many species that make their home here and nowhere else. Paothong’s new book Sage Grouse: Icon of the West celebrates the beauty of the sage-grouse and aims to bring a spotlight to the ever-growing list of threats to its existence.

GIS is an acronym that stands for Geographic Information Science, or Geographic Information System. This powerful technology enables Bird Conservancy Biologists to answer research questions, design scientific surveys, and measure the impacts of conservation projects on bird populations at a landscape scale.
The past year of pandemic life has been a struggle for most us in many ways. For a field biologist who truly values time outdoors and in nature, the transition to telework and isolation is particularly impactful. But forced solitude leads to unexpected new perspectives, including a stronger connection to the land, nature, and community.
Diversity, inclusion, equity, and accessibility are essential to our work at Bird Conservancy of the Rockies. We are working to promote these principles at every level of our organization, including in our most public-facing communication tool – our website. We are therefore excited to launch the Recite Me toolbar on our website, which you can access on a desktop, laptop, and mobile device!
