The Michigan Sharp-tailed Grouse Association (MSGA) partners with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and several other conservation oriented entities in performing spring lek surveys (mating activities).

The MSGA also participates in both short term and long term management activities which include: (1) the establishment and regulation of hunting seasons; (2) the possible translocation of sharp-tailed grouse into areas of suitable habitat; and (3) offering assistance in the development of management areas on both public and private lands.
