We have been asked by local researchers monitoring the leks to remove the map. Apparently, the Crowley lek populations are in decline and there is possibilty of state (federal?) listing. Also, the researchers feel too many people have been visiting the leks in recent years...and a handful have stepped passed the viewing boundary and disturbed the lek.

However, the local BLM office is looking for reliable volunteers to help monitor specific leks - I think even if you can volunteer for just one morning. If you'd like to pursue this opportunity, give me an email ( and I'll put you in touch with the right people.
