Sage-grouse and Pronghorn Antelope Topics of Presentation May 20 in Portland

 
May 10, 2010

 

PORTLAND, Ore.—The Oregon Wildlife Heritage Foundation invites you to learn about greater sage-grouse and pronghorn antelope in Oregon as part of its Spring Speaker Series with a presentation by state wildlife biologists on Thursday, May 20 at 7 p.m. in Portland.

Sage-grouse and pronghorn are natives of Oregon’s high desert region. Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife Biologist Christian Hagen will discuss the challenges facing the charismatic greater sage-grouse and what is being done to conserve this at-risk species. Don Whittaker will talk about the fleet-footed pronghorn, another occupant of the high desert, which has been recovered from very low population numbers through a proactive management approach.

Admission to the Series is free, but registration is required. Register online at OWHF’s website www.owhf.org/springspeakerseries or call (503) 255-6059.

This hour-long talk will be held at the Jean Vollum Natural Capital Center (Ecotrust Building) in Portland’s Pearl District, 721 NW Ninth Avenue, Portland.

The final presentation in the speaker series, which is about black bear and Columbian white-tailed deer, will be held Wednesday, June 23, 2010.

The Oregon Wildlife Heritage Foundation champions projects that benefit fish, wildlife and habitat for access, education and enjoyment by all. Since its founding, OWHF has directed millions of dollars in funding to fish, wildlife and habitat projects throughout Oregon. For more information contact Tim Greseth, OWHF executive director, at (503) 255-6059.

OWHF and ODFW are working together to implement the Oregon Conservation Strategy, a blueprint and action plan for the long-term conservation of Oregon’s native fish and wildlife and their habitats.
