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 to include the new management direction.

Idaho / Southwest Montana Sub-Region

The Idaho/southwest Montana sub-region encompasses the Boise, Coeur d’Alene, Idaho Falls, and Twin Falls Districts in Idaho and the Western Montana District in southwest Montana.

The EIS process is guided by NEPA. As with all EISs, the NEPA process is kicked off with the publication of a Notice of Intent (NOI) in the Federal Register You can view the NOI on this site’s Documents and Reports page in the left navigation column. The Press Release is available on the News page.
