Lassen County students participate in greater sage grouse lek count

Thursday, May 21, 2015 — On April 17 and 18, the Lassen County Environmental Education Collaborative, with support from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, hosted youth in seventh through 12th grades for a greater sage grouse lek count near Skedaddle Mountain.
    The group camped overnight beside Noble’s Trail on Friday evening and woke up bright and early at 5 a.m. to count grouse the next morning. With the help of CDFW wildlife biologist Brian Ehler, the assembly of eight youth and a team of volunteer adults counted a total of eight male grouse on the lek performing their unique mating dance, which includes the inflation of air-filled vocal sacs and fanning of tail feathers.

May is Be Bear Aware Month

Thursday, May 21, 2015 — May is Be Bear Aware Month and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife reminds the public to act responsibly when in bear country. Spring is the time of year when California’s black bears emerge from their winter dens in search of food. Because bears are attracted to anything edible or smelly, their search often leads them into campsites and residential neighborhoods, where trash and food is readily available.
    There are an estimated 35,000 bears in California. Throughout spring and summer, CDFW receives many calls when bears break into homes, rummage through trash bins and raid campsites. These bears are often labeled “nuisance” bears, but in reality they are just doing what comes naturally to them, foraging for food.
