Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Sage Grouse Continued

Posted By on Fri, Sep 18, 2015 at 2:17 PM



This week our Feature focused on The Endangered Species Act and the Sage Grouse Initiative. "In 2010, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service made a decision that set in motion what many are calling a landmark transformation in how the nation recovers imperiled wildlife," Lisa Seales write. "Ordinarily, the sage grouse's situation might land it on the federal endangered species list, ushering in much-feared land-use restrictions. But the agency declined to list the bird, not because it didn't need protection—listing was warranted, it declared—but because other creatures needed it more. Instead, the agency promised to make a final call on sage grouse by September 30 of this year."

On October 16th, the High Desert Museum opens a new exhibit titled "Sage Grouse: Icon of the Sagebrush Sea." The exhibit follows on the heels of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service’s determination to list the bird under the Endangered Species Act. A final decision by the agency is expected to be announced in September 2015. Photographer Noppadol Paothong to speak at opening reception on October 16th.
