Sharp-Tailed Grouse Viewing

Wyoming

This is a field trip for the early birds! Rise and shine before the sun to join us to view a sharp-tailed grouse lek. A lek is a communal "dancing ground" where males engage in competitive displays to attract females.

We’ll meet in the front parking lot of the Cheyenne Pilot Truck Stop at 8020 Campstool Road. Use Exit 367 off I-80, also known as the WHR exit.

Departure is at 5:30 a.m. sharp. We will carpool to the lek site. The field trip, including travel and viewing time, will take approximately three hours.
