Utah Greater Sage-Grouse Draft Land Use Plan Amendment and Environmental Impact State is available for Public Comment

Cover page for the Utah Greater Sage-Grouse Draft Environment Impact StatementOn Friday, November 1, 2013, the Ashley, Manti-La Sal, Uinta-Wasatch-Cache, Fishlake, Dixie National Forests and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) released the Utah Greater Sage-Grouse Draft Land Use Plan Amendment and Environmental Impact Statement for a 90-day public comment period. The draft would potentially amend six Forest Service and 14 BLM land use plans.

The draft considers five possible management alternatives for maintaining and increasing habitat for greater sage-grouse on Forest Service- and BLM-administered lands in Utah. The alternatives apply to federal lands and minerals only, not to private lands. Alternative D is the preferred alternative. Identification of this preferred alternative does not represent the final decision of either agency. The final alternative selected may include a mix of objectives and actions from any of the alternatives analyzed in the environmental impact statement.

Information on upcoming open houses as well as the Draft Utah Greater Sage-Grouse Land Use Plan Amendment and Environmental Impact Statement is available for review and comment on the BLM-Utah’s web site. Additional information is available on the BLM Sage-Grouse web site.
