Western Region – National Greater Sage-Grouse Planning Strategy


For the purposes of this planning effort, the Western Region is divided into four sub-regions: Northeastern California and Nevada; Oregon; Idaho and Southwestern Montana; and Utah.  Each sub-region will undertake an EIS covering its territory.   Each sub-region-specific EIS will have its own strategy to address sagebrush issues and will address the impacts of amending all pertinent RMPs with that guidance. Only RMPs that cover planning areas containing sagebrush habitat will be included for amendment.  (See "Links" on the left for links to additional information).  The Record of Decision, which comes at the end of the EIS process, will amend the RMPs and Forest Plans to include the new management direction.
