National Greater Sage Grouse Planning Initiative

From our friends at the American Bird Conservancy comes the announcement of a briefing and webinar next week on conservation of the Greater Sage-Grouse:



The National Greater Sage-Grouse
Planning Initiative – Briefing and Webinar

The Obama administration has initiated a major land use planning process to conserve greater sage-grouse on more than 60 million acres of public lands. Please join us to learn more about this unprecedented effort and how it could—properly implemented—increase conservation and improve management on millions of acres of Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Forest Service managed lands.

The BLM will begin releasing the draft regional environmental impact statements in June—come learn how your organization can join the planning process on behalf of sage-grouse.  There is an in-person briefing and discussion in Washington, D.C. Tuesday, May 28 and Wednesday May 29, a webinar for activists around the country.
