Silver Sage (F4-16)
Silver Sage was expanded in 2015 from 2,051 acres to 2,371 acres. This site is located approximately 15 km south of Manyberries along secondary Highway 889 and extends to the east along secondary Highway 501. Wildlife surveys completed in 2010 and 2011 identified 65 species that enjoy the mix of native prairie uplands, ephemeral wetlands and cropland. Management activities focus on restoring cropland back to native grassland in order to benefit greater sage-grouse and other grassland species such as Sprague's pipit, sharp-tailed grouse and pronghorn antelope. Other wildlife observed here includes ferruginous hawks, deer, prairie rattlesnakes, badgers, pintails, mallards and various songbirds.
