The landscape and culture of the Interior West are characterized by the iconic sagebrush steppe ecosystems that are valued and used by people with a long and deep connection to the land. A need and desire has been identified to create a new balance between the use and protection of this landscape to conserve its important attributes, including greater sage-grouse. We have involved a multi-faceted effort that includes both planning and on-the-ground projects across multiple states. We have come together through working groups, task forces, councils, and meetings with the public, Tribes, state and federal agencies, counties, and associations.
