Greater sage grouse participate in mating activities on a lek in Moffat County. The Colorado Environmental Coalition is hoping to build off a business idea it developed to offer viewing trips of sage grouse mating activities.

Sasha Nelson, northwest organizer for the Colorado Environmental Coalition, said there’s a simple reason residents from as far away as Great Britain came to Moffat County last spring. They were hoping to catch a glimpse of one of the “phenomenal” and “spectacular” things wildlife does, but few are able to see. Locally, that wildlife is the greater sage grouse and that action is its yearly mating dance, Nelson said.
