Comments on Greater Sage-Grouse Plans Received and Summarized

Update April 10, 2018

The Northern, 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 have been identified. To thoroughly and transparently explore the effectiveness of the plans, the Forests Service asked for comments from the public during a comment period which ran from November 21, 2017 to January 19, 2018. The comments received are summarized into a report that is available online.

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.
