Sage Grouse Mating Again

April 12, 2012 Grand Teton National Park, Jackson Hole, Teton County No Comments
Sage Grouse

Grand Teton National Park ranger naturalists have begun their early-morning tours to observe strutting sage grouse performing their annual courtship dance on an historic lek located just off the Antelope Flats Road near Mormon Row. Strutting grouse trips are being offered beginning this weekend.  Ranger-led excursions offer an exceptional opportunity to witness this unique springtime ritual as sage grouse congregate and perform animated courtship displays. While participants view the antics of strutting grouse, rangers will provide information about their natural history and various conservation efforts underway for sage grouse populations that have declined throughout much of the American West.  Sage grouse tours begin from the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center at 5:30 a.m. and reservations are required.

  • Find some new places to fish - April 16, 2014
    Instead of fishing the same old places this spring, do something different. Find a new honey hole. You don’t have to go to the same place every time you go fishing. When you find a good spot to fish, it’s nice to know you can go back there and catch fish. But if your honey […]
