Wednesday, 10 December 2014
White Mountain Research Station (3000 East Line Street, Bishop)
Dinner at 6:00pm.
Program, Dancing Birds in the Sagebrush Sea of the Eastern Sierra- the Bi-State Distinct Population of Greater Sage-grouse, at 7:00pm
Please join us for our annual holiday potluck dinner, held at 6pm in the dining room of the White Mountain Research Station at 3000 East Line Street (4 mi. east of Bishop).
Do plan to attend as it is a fun event, and bring a friend or neighbor! Every participant should bring a dish (entrée, salad, or dessert to serve at least 6 people, and contribute either juice, soft drinks, wine or beer to the beverage table). We often run out of food, so we would appreciate contributions of larger portions so there will be sufficient food for everyone. Please bring your own place setting. Audubon will provide coffee, tea, juice, and a touch of wine prior to the dinner. Also, we encourage you to bring more main dishes and salads this year than desserts!
The Program:
Dancing Birds in the Sagebrush Sea of the Eastern Sierra- the Bi-State Distinct Population of Greater Sage-grouse
Following the potluck dinner, Sherri Lisius- BLM Wildlife Biologist- will give a presentation on the Bi-State Distinct Population Segment of Greater Sage-grouse, recently proposed as Threatened under the Endangered Species Act. The talk will include a discussion of the life cycle of the bird, an update on the status of the species, and an overview of actions the Local Area Working Group are doing to conserve the sage grouse and its habitat.

Sherri Lisius is currently the wildlife biologist for the BLM in Bishop, California. She has captured, counted and monitored Sage-grouse in the Bi-State DPS since 2010. Sherri has worked in the Sierra Nevada on and off since 1990.  Her work has included: bear management, amphibian surveys, backcountry ranger and wildlife biologist work. Sherri received a bachelor of science in Wildlife Management from Humboldt State University in 2002.
