    Additional Notes
    Acreage in Habitat Enhancement Field is for 2 conservation easements that were secured by DWR to protect active leks. DWR and BLM have also conducted seedings and sagebrush seedling plantings to improve habitat conditions -- total acreage unknown. A well was drilled and a solar pump installed to spread water along a draw and create a wet meadow for brood rearing habitat. Small drinkers were installed along an existing livestock water system to provide water for gunnison sage-grouse during summer months. Research on gunnison sage-grouse biology and habitat requirements continues.
