Yet another meeting will be held to discuss a conservation strategy regarding a proposed listing of an animal as a “threatened” species.

The landowner outreach and information meeting for the Stakeholders’ Conservation Strategy for the Lesser Prairie Chicken and the LEPC Habitat Exchange Program will be held on Thursday, January 23rd in Morton, Texas.

According to the group, non-governmental stakeholder groups that encompass agriculture, the oil and gas industry, and the environmental community have all joined together to develop the Stakeholders’ Conservation Strategy for the Lesser Prairie Chicken.

The group aims to provide a market-based response to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s proposed listing of the Lesser Prairie Chicken as a “threatened” species under the Endangered Species Act.

The event will be held at 6 p.m. at the Cochran County Activity Center in Morton. A meal will be provided for attendees.

To RSVP for the meeting meal, call Shawn Wade with Plains Cotton Growers at 806-778-6256.
