Sage-Grouse Face a New Threat
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) recently unveiled draft supplemental environmental impact statements for six western states, claiming to address problems that caused a federal judge to block the federal government’s revised sage-grouse plans. Audubon, however, sees this as yet another politically motivated attempt to sidestep science and what’s best for western communities. Once again, we need your voice. Please tell the BLM not to weaken sage-grouse conservation plans.Take action

A Water Win in Colorado
An instream flow bill that 1,450 of you helped us support passed both the Colorado House and the Senate with wide bipartisan support. Thank you! The bill would expand a short-term water loan program and help Colorado’s rivers, birds, agriculture, and communities. It is now on its way to Governor Polis.Learn more
