Administrative Change to the Timeframe set in the Records of Decision

Male Sage-Grouse Struting

On November 27, 2017, the Forest Service provided public notice of an administrative change we intended to make to the land management plans that were altered on September 16, 2015. This administrative change does not affect any plan components, only other plan content, as it extends the timeframe for implementing of livestock grazing direction.
