There are many uncertainties surrounding the effects of ESA listing of the Gunnison Sage-grouse on the communities of the Gunnison Basin. As part of her PhD work with the Resiilience and Adaptation program at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, Corrie Knapp has conducted interdisciplinary research examining what we know about the Sage-grouse and how it is percieved to affect local landowners, particularly in the ranching community. Her findings will be timely and relevant to anyone in the valley with an interest in the Gunnison Sage-grouse.
