Weekend Trip to Local Sage-Grouse Lek

Saturday morning, April 13th at 5:00 am. Come watch the grouse strut their stuff!

Meet at 5am at the Eppson Senior Center parking lot, Curtis & 3rd St., Laramie.  We will carpool to the lek at 5:10am sharp.  Please call 516-376-4587 (Shawn) or 307-760-9518 (Vicki) if you plan on attending so we will have an idea about how many people to expect.  4WD recommended.  Carpooling encouraged.  It is very windy at the lek so dress extra warm.  We are usually back in Laramie by 8 or 8:30 am. 

Alternate date in case of inclement weather or impassable roads is April 20, same time and place. If that day is bad, then we will try April 27, 4:30 am, leaving at 4:45 am sharp.

Dress for the worst weather.  Bring snacks and water, hot beverage optional, binoculars, scope if you have one, and field guides.  You may return to Laramie at any time if you have your own transportation.  Families are welcome.  We stay close to our automobiles so as not to disturb the grouse.  Be sure to gas up ahead of time!
