WGC’s Mission

 

The Western Grouse Coalition (WGC) is dedicated to preserving our western way of life. We value our public land and are working with a wide range of stakeholder to promote sustainable resource management and development in the sagebrush ecosystem. WGC Understands that conservation and responsible economic develop are not mutually exclusive.

 

As Westerners, we have a special relationship with the land. We have seen the consequences of Washington, DC driven policies and know they are not a good substitute for decision made with input from those of us who live, work and recreate here.

 

As the eleven western states that are home to sage grouse face the threat of an Endangered Species Act (ESA) listing for the bird, we are working hard to educate the public and elected officials about the importance of on-the-ground management decision using the best available science.
