STCP Receives Cabela's Outdoor Fund (COF) Grant
COF Assists STCP’s Nebraska’s Sandhills Prairie Grouse Research
STCP is pleased to announce that we have recently been awarded a $30,750.00 grant from Cabela’s Outdoor Fund. The grant will provide funding for GPS radios and additional airplane time for aerial radio-tracking of greater prairie-chickens.
A significant portion of the hen prairie-chickens we’ve been following in Nebraska have moved great distances seasonally – some up to 75 miles. Determining when and how these movements are made will provide the information necessary to help us better understand how much of an area these birds truly require and manage populations accordingly so that greater prairie-chickens will not become threatened/endangered and instead remain true icons of our prairie grasslands.
STCP would like to express our sincere appreciation to Cabela’s Outdoor Fund for their much appreciated support.
