Efforts to restore sage grouse habitat move forward
Last year, we reported on a new project to restore sage grouse habitat that’s been disturbed by energy development in the Powder River Basin. The Bureau of Land Management, the Natural Resources Conservation Service, and other agencies are participating in the effort.
And they’re starting to make progress. Wyoming Public Radio’s Willow Belden spoke with Janelle Gonzales, who’s coordinating the project for the BLM, and Bill Ostheimer, a natural resource specialist at the BLM’s office in Buffalo. Gonzales says what they’re trying to do is restore sage grouse habitat after oil and gas wells are no longer in use.
