PINEDALE — The Upper Green River Basin Sage Grouse Working group — one of eight regional groups in Wyoming — plans to meet in Pinedale on Monday, May 15, from 2 to 4 p.m., to discuss the allocation of funds for projects to implement the sage-grouse conservation plan.

Each of the regional working groups consists of citizens who help develop and initiate plans to benefit sage grouse and when feasible other species that utilize sagebrush habitats.

The public is invited to attend the upcoming meeting, which will be held at the Wyoming Game and Fish Office, located at 432 Mill St. in Pinedale.
