Come help Eastern Sierra Land Trust and the Bureau of Land Management as we team up to care for land where our Bi-State sage-grouse live, for two back-to-back Stewardship Days. On September 6th and 7th, we need as many hands as possible to work on habitat enhancement projects on land that the sage-grouse calls home.
We will be using hand tools to convert a permanent fence to a let-down fence, and we’ll be maintaining other fences in the area. Let-down fences are able to lay flat on the ground during peak sage-grouse breeding season, and then are able to be put back up during grazing season. This helps sage-grouse, pronghorn, and mule deer migrate safely.
Both workdays are family friendly, and all are invited to lend a hand. Please bring a hat, closed-toe shoes, sunscreen, a camera, and water. Please leave pets at home. Follow the event on our Facebook page!
