The tours offer an opportunity to view imperiled Greater Sage Grouse strutting their stuff to attract mates.
In 2010, The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced that the Greater sage grouse was a candidate for Endangered Species Act protection. Over the past century, sage grouse populations have declined up to 98% across their native range. Habitat disturbing activities such as oil and gas development, wildfire, invasive species infestations and the like have pushed the bird to the brink of extinction.
Today, Moffat County’s large, unfragmented blocks of sagebrush is home to over two-thirds of Colorado’s population. While the future of this western icon seems to be in doubt, there are still opportunities to see it and one of the wild’s most spectacular mating displays.
