Sage grouse tours starting late March

Craig Daily Press Staff Report

Colorado Parks and Wildlife, along with Conservation Colorado, is putting on public, guided tours in northwest Colorado to watch the greater-sage grouse in the area perform their mating ritual.

The tours from March 28-April 7 will offer a unique wildlife experience in Colorado as the sage grouse return to their mating grounds (leks) to dance and compete for mates. The display is a must-see for birdwatchers, CPW officials said, but will also be interesting for a casual wildlife fan.

The tours require a reservation. To learn more about the tours or make a reservation, visit Conservation Colorado online.
