Sharp-tailed Grouse Lek Surveys Landowner Inquiry Results 2000
Spring lek surveys in the Northwest region of Alberta were completed for the Sharp-tailed Grouse Habitat Program in 1999 and 2000. Habitat assessments were performed on active historical lek sites and 12 of the 17 new lek sites identified in 2000. As an extension for 2000, landowner questionnaires and workshops were established to determine if habitat management projects could be developed in the study area. A total of 52 questionnaires were completed resulting in compilation of much needed landowner perspectives and attitudes towards habitat management.
