Greetings WLA Members,
On April 13th, the Western Landowners Alliance will team with Tim Griffiths, the West Regional Coordinator of NRCS' Working Lands for Wildlife (WLFW) program, along with other national and regional NRCS staff, to bring you a discussion of how working lands can help conserve declining species.
Designed specifically for landowners and managers in the West, topics will include a quick overview of NRCS and the WLFW vision and structure, examples of specific WLFW efforts including the three Western priority species initiatives (Greater Sage-Grouse, Lesser Prairie-Chicken, Southwestern Willow Flycatcher), and ample time for landowner-related questions and discussion.
We thank the following NRCS experts for their participation in this discussion:
Tim Griffiths - West Regional Coordinator, WLFW (Bozeman, MT)
Galon Hall - National Coordinator, WLFW (Washington, DC)
Jon Ungerer - Lesser Prairie-Chicken Initiative Coordinator (Manhattan, KS)
Thad Heater - Sage Grouse Initiative Coordinator (Reno, NV)
Stu Tuttle - Southwestern Willow Flycatcher Lead (Flagstaff, AZ)
Online capacity is limited. WLA members are receiving the first round of invitations. We’ll invite a broader circle next week. Please register now to reserve your space.
There will be online presentations, so a good internet connection is best, but we are also working to ensure this is valuable to those who may only be able to connect by phone.
We look forward to your participation on April 13th!
Hallie & Kathleen
Western Landowners Alliance
