Success Stories

Managing and conserving sagebrush landscapes and sage-grouse habitat in 11 Western states is one of the BLM’s most important current programs. The Bureau has worked with many dedicated partners at the federal, state and local levels as well as private citizens to restore and conserve crucial sage-grouse habitat on public lands and adjacent private lands.

In a number of cases, projects initiated for other reasons -- hazardous fuels reduction or reclamation, for example -- have the additional benefit of also restoring or creating habitat for sage-grouse.  Healthy sagebrush landscapes work for sage-grouse and hundreds of other species while sustaining local communities whose economies are tied to the land.

Projects like these address threats to sage-grouse and improve overall land health on several other fronts, to help avert the need to impose restrictions on uses of public lands in the future.
