Secretary Jewell Meets with Sage Grouse Stakeholders at Colorado Ranch


January 21, 2014

On January 21, 2014, Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell and Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper visited northwestern Colorado as part of the Secretary’s commitment to working with states and private landowners toward developing conservation efforts for sage grouse in the region. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe and Bureau of Land Management Principal Deputy Director Neil Kornze joined Jewell and Hickenlooper for a tour of the Bord Gulch Ranch, as well as for a stakeholder meeting with local landowners and officials.


  • Secretary Jewell commended Ray Owens of Bord Gulf Ranch. “[He] is a model of the 21st century western rancher with his outstanding stewardship of this working landscape. He represents the spirit of partnership that can be replicated across the West as we develop landscape-level strategies to lessen the threats to the sage grouse and conserve its habitat." Photo: DOI
