Summary of Comments on Draft Environmental Impact Statement to Amend Sage-Grouse Plans

Greater Sage Grouse Conservation

The Intermountain and Rocky Mountain Regions of the Forests Service incorporated standards and guidelines for the conservation of greater sage-grouse into forest plans in 2015. As plans have been implemented, potential inefficiencies and difficulties were identified. Comments were requested on an initial Notice of Intent (NOI), and a supplemental NOI to revise the 2015 plans in 2017 and 2018. Those comments were used to create a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) to amend forest plans. The public comment period for the DEIS ended on January 3, 2019. The comments received have been summarized into a report.
