Greater Sage-grouse and Power Lines: Reasons for Concern

Category: Wildlife Research and Management - Wildlife Research

Date Published: January 12, 2010

Number of Pages: 6

Author(s): Michael A. Schroeder

The purpose of this brief report is to highlight some of the information directly related to power lines within greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) management areas. The need for additional energy sources, especially sources that are considered ‘green’, is an important development issue in the state of Washington. As the pressure to expand these developments into remnant areas of native habitat increases, it is important that we consider the potential impacts on our wildlife resources.
