Greater Sage Grouse

The Northern, Intermountain, and Rocky Mountain Regions of the Forest Service incorporated standards and guidelines for the conservation of greater sage-grouse into forest plans in 2015. All of the plan components for sage-grouse conservation remain in effect, but the timing of implementation of grazing guidelines will vary from the plans’ initial timelines.  http://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/fseprd565108.pdf

Proposed Text Adjustments in Forest Service Sage-Grouse Plans

The Forest Service is proposing to amend the Forest Service land management plans that were amended in 2015 regarding greater sage-grouse conservation in the states of Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, Wyoming, and Utah.  A Supplemental Notice of Intent (NOI) to create a Draft Environmental Impact Statement was published in the Federal Register on June 20, 2018.  The NOI listed several categories of potential changes, but more specific proposed adjustments to the text in the plans can be found by following the links for Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, Wyoming, Utah. Commenters are encouraged to provide specific responses to textual edits that are being considered.
