The Colorado Chapter of The Wildlife Society will host a workshop about sagebrush and understory vegetation August 8-9 in Gunnison, Colorado.

The workshop will cover identification of important functional groups, palatability/nutrition and how wildlife use critical plants both for food and cover. Wildlife species of interest will include sage-grouse, mule deer, pronghorn and a wide variety of other sagebrush inhabitants. Additionally, the workshop will discuss how livestock use certain plants and if certain management strategies will improve cover of important species. The workshop will feature presentations and discussion from both local experts and sagebrush botanist Roger Rosentreter, a retired BLM botanist from Idaho.
