Big Horn Basin Sage-Grouse Working Group Seeks New Member
The role of the group is to develop and implement projects consistent with local sage-grouse conservation plans that benefit the species and reduce the likelihood of sage-grouse being listed under the federal Endangered Species Act.
Tom Easterly, working group member and wildlife biologist with Wyoming Game & Fish, said the successful applicant will serve on the board as a regular member and will be expected to attend two or more meeting per year. “The primary focus of the group in 2012 will be drafting an addendum to the 2007 Big Horn Basin Sage-Grouse Conservation Plan,” he said.
Interested persons are encouraged to submit a short letter of interest to Chris Pfister, Sage-Grouse Local Working group, 3900 Gooseberry Road, Worland, WY 82401 or firstname.lastname@example.org by Feb. 20, 2012. Letters of interest should include general background information of the applicant. The “public-at-large” vacancy is a volunteer position; however, reimbursement for travel is available.
