The North American Grouse Partnership (NAGP) works to bring the plight of declining grouse species and their habitats to the attention of the public, provides oversight for the health of grouse populations, implements solutions to the problems causing grouse declines and encourages public policies and management decisions that will enhance important habitats and grouse populations.

It’s amazing to see how many people have responded to this book. I hope this book is helping these remarkable species at least in a small step.

Thank you again for your support and thank you for caring.
