Trust to host discussion about sage grouse conservation

Monday, March 9, 2015 — Lassen Land and Trails Trust is hosting a conversation about the greater sage grouse at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 12 at the historic Susanville Railroad Depot, 601 Richmond Road, Susanville. The conversation will be led by Frank Hall, retired wildlife biologist from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, and Tiffany Russell, Northeast California partner biologist with Point Blue Conservation Science.

Wide-open expanses of sagebrush steppe are part of the rich history of the American West. Sage grouse share this iconic landscape with mule deer, pronghorn, elk and hundreds of other species of birds. Sage and the wide-open spaces are crucial to the greater sage grouse. Perhaps no other animal depends upon it as completely as the chicken-sized sage grouse.
