A Look Back
Quite a lot happened in April! Here are some of the highlights:
  • We co-hosted the Colorado Environmental Film Festival’s Caravan in Pagosa Springs. Abby Burk—our western rivers regional program manager— presented our film Ranching in the New Normal, gave the keynote speech, and led a discussion.  
  • We delivered petitions with a total of more than 3,000 signatures to the governors of CO, WY, ID, and NV to demonstrate support for science-based management of Greater Sage-Grouse.
  • We partnered with The Wilderness Society and The Nature Conservancy to take bipartisan congressional staff on a field tour of sagebrush country in Wyoming and help them understand the importance of conserving this ecosystem.
  • We co-organized the 2019 Wyoming Beef Symposium and informed ranchers there of the benefits of Audubon’s Conservation Ranching Initiative. Learn more about the symposium
