March 14, 2019

CODY– The Big Horn Basin Sage-Grouse Working Group will meet March 21 from 9:30 a.m. to noon at the Washakie County Fairgrounds (501 15 Mile Road) in Worland.

The role of the group is to develop and initiate local conservation plans to benefit sage-grouse and, whenever feasible, other species that use sagebrush habitats. The group will meet to discuss updates to the Governor’s Sage-Grouse Executive Order and will welcome a new member.

The working group is comprised of local citizens interested in sage-grouse conservation. Members represent agriculture, industry, conservation, sportspersons and affected governmental agencies. There are eight such groups operating in Wyoming.

The public is invited to attend the meeting and comments from the public will be heard at a designated time.
