Planning Future Restoration for Long Term Survival of Greater Sage-Grouse
Date: 08/14/2020
Time: 07:00:00 PM
Description:

Redwood Region Audubon Society's Zoom presentation with Beth Fitzpatrick.

Populations of Greater Sage-Grouse, the largest grouse in North America, have been declining across the west, and its distribution has been reduced by about 50% since European settlement.  In the spring, sage-grouse males dance and display at sites called leks in an attempt to attract females. If sage-grouse are to survive, their lek sites, nesting sites, wintering sites, and the landscape connections between them need to remain intact. In this presentation, Beth Fitzpatrick will talk about her work in identifying areas important to the Greater Sage-Grouse by assessing the influence of landscape characteristics on sage-grouse breeding site distribution, and on connectivity between populations.

Beth Fitzpatrick is an ornithologist and spatial ecologist.  She is a PhD candidate at the University of Wyoming, and recently taught classes on spatial and population ecology and wildlife management at Humboldt State University.
