In Gunnison, Colorado, there is an innovative collaboration to
conserve the Gunnison Sage Grouse, a threatened--but not
endangered--species native to this part of the Southwest. By
building simple rock structures, using the techniques of land
restoration pioneer Bill Zeedyk, they have been able to build up
habitat for the sage grouse, and at the same time provide increased
forage for cattle.
We talk to Nathan Seward Terrestrial Biologist with Colorado Parks and Wildlife, and Brett Redden of Redden Ranches in Gunnison, Colorado.
