Sage Grouse: Icon of the West, Photography by Noppadol PaothongNovember 7, 2020 - May 2, 2021
This stunning photography exhibition highlights an extraordinary story of life, natural history, and the unique spring courtship behaviors of the greater sage-grouse. Noppadol Paothong has been documenting the high desert sagebrush sea for the last 18 years. The bizarre courtship dance of greater sage-grouse is known to nature lovers as one of the most impressive wildlife displays in North America. Now, with populations dramatically declining, Paothong hopes to spark discussion about conservation in ways that will benefit all – humans and wildlife coexisting in sage-grouse habitat.
