SHERIDAN — The Northeast Wyoming Sage Grouse Local Working Group will hold a public meeting March 19 at 9:30 a.m. at the Buffalo Bureau of Land Management Office.

The group is one of eight regional sage grouse working groups statewide and is comprised of 14 local citizens representing groups interested in sage grouse conservation.

Items on the agenda for the meeting include an introduction of the new statewide sage grouse coordinator Leslie Schreiber, updates on local and statewide sage grouse issues and a review of the sage grouse executive order.

The public is invited to attend the meeting and listen to proceedings, and a public comment period is scheduled at 9:40 a.m.
