Sage-grouse habitat conservation through prisons
May 19, 2016 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
This webinar presented by Stacy Moore, Ecological Education Program, Institute for Applied Ecology (IAE), introduces the Sagebrush in Prisons Project, which is designed to improve habitat for the greater sage-grouse by engaging state prison systems in production of sagebrush and other important plants for habitat restoration on BLM lands. BLM field offices and the IAE grow sagebrush with 11 prisons in 6 states. Inmates are involved in sowing plants, growing them over the summer, and planting-out on BLM land in the fall.
