Bi-State Basics

The Bi-State sage-grouse is population of the greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) that is genetically and geographically isolated from other greater sage-grouse populations and is considered to be a distinct population segment (DPS) by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Its range occurs within an area approximately 170-miles long and up to 60 miles wide and includes portions of five counties in western Nevada: Douglas, Lyon, Carson City, Mineral, and Esmeralda; and three counties in eastern California: Alpine, Mono, and Inyo.
