SGI Featured Friend: Mule Deer Foundation
September 5, 2014
In Utah’s sage grouse habitats, partners like the Mule Deer Foundation are working together on new grazing systems that are designed to benefit ranching, sage grouse, and mule deer. The primary goals are to sustain range health, restore riparian areas, and improve water quality. Other projects include juniper removal to restore the historic sagebrush-steppe.
The Mule Deer Foundation is dedicated to the conservation of mule deer, black-tailed deer and their habitat.
The Sage Grouse Initiative is a partnership-based, science-driven effort that uses voluntary incentives to proactively conserve America’s western rangelands, wildlife, and rural way of life. This initiative is part of Working Lands For Wildlife, which is led by USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service.
