New research from USGS and Colorado and Utah State Universities shows the effects of livestock grazing on greater sage-grouse populations can be positive or negative depending on the amount of grazing and when grazing occurs. These results provide valuable scientific information to help with our efforts to conserve sage grouse in ranching communities.
Learn about oak trees and the animals that depend on them at the Oregon Zoo's Nature Exploration Station in the new Education Center from 11 -3. Oak experts from around the region will be there to answer all your questions.
Our State Supervisor, Paul Henson, received the Service's 2016 Science Leadership Award! Paul champions the use of high quality science in conservation decision-making. He empowers his staff to do the same and leads by example - advancing reasonable approaches to accomplish conservation goals.
NRCS's voluntary program helps eligible conservation partners protect, restore and enhance critical wetlands on agricultural lands by integrating wetland restoration with working farms and ranchs. Get your proposal in by April 24!!!
Together, the National Park Service, the Yurok Tribe, and the US Fish and Wildlife Service are proposing to restore condors in California by reintroducing birds into Yurok Ancestral Territory within Redwood National Park. There are many steps in the planning process - currently, we are reviewing comments received during public scoping.
