Gunnison Sage-grouse Sunrise Programs

April 1-2, 2022

April 7-8, 2022


NOTICE: The Sisk-a-dee programs are full for 2022


The first date includes an evening presentation about the ecology and conservation of the Gunnison Sage-grouse, followed by a morning viewing at the Waunita Watchable Wildlife Site

Reservations required, space is limited.  Contact Sisk-a-dee at 970-641-3959 or

Meet in Hurst Hall room 130 at Western Colorado University at 6:30 pm for the evening program

For the morning lek viewing, be prepared and wear warm clothing (average temperature is 20 F), bring a blanket or sleeping bag to sit on, bring a headlamp, and it is best to have a spotting scope and tripod.  The grouse are more than 1 km away.  It is not advised to drink coffee or other drinks in the morning as we will not have access to a bathroom until after the grouse have finished their displays.
