Event description

Description

We still have room for one person OR one couple on this program! (If signing up as a couple, please contact us at 406.327.0405.)

Discover a success story of collaborative conservation and a dancing wonder of the world and the wide, open west--the Greater Sage-Grouse. In this three-day exploration through the Grasshopper Valley of southwestern Montana, you'll experience a welcoming mix of place-based experiences and expert knowledge as you explore the natural history of sage-grouse. This field experience will allow you a rare opportunity to see their magnificent mating displays on leks protected by ranchers, landowners, and conservation partners.

Greater Sage-Grouse perform elaborate courtship displays each spring on a lek, or mating arena. During the early morning and evening, males display by strutting, fanning their tail feathers, and inflating bright yellow gular sacs, creating a unique sounds. The grouse return to the same leks year after year for generations, hoping to attract females.

This field weekend is for anyone looking to deepen their knowledge of this species, while enjoying being part of a group of naturalists in one of the most beautiful corners of our state.
