The conservation measures were released in two federal Records of Decisions (RODs) yesterday in conjunction with the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s (FWS) announcement that the bird does not warrant protection under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).  To view the RODs and plan amendments or for more information about the Forest Service’s greater sage-grouse conservation efforts, please visit  www.fs.usda.gov/detail/r4/home/?cid=STELPRD3843381 .
