Project Description

In cooperation with Backcountry Hunters and Anglers this project will undertake fence inventory, modification and removal along with wet meadow restoration around core sage grouse areas. Targeted work will occur near known lek sites and in areas adjacent to other habitat improvement or restoration work already completed. While benefitting sage-grouse, it will also provide direct wildlife movement and migration benefits to priority corridors for elk as defined in Colorado Parks and Wildlife State Action Plan.
