Bi-State Sage-Grouse Action Plans

The Bi-State sage-grouse distinct population segment (DPS) of the greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) has been the center of collaborative conservation efforts for over two decades. The Bi-State partnership involves a multi-jurisdictional group of diverse stakeholders whose work has been guided by a series of Bi-State Sage-Grouse Action Plans released first in 2004, again in 2012, and now, in 2024. The primary goals of these Bi-State Action Plans are to 1) maintain and improve sagebrush and associated habitats in the Bi-State area for the greater sage-grouse and other species; and 2) ensure no net loss of greater sage-grouse breeding populations in the Bi-State area.

As with the 2012 Plan, actions in the 2024 Plan are devised to 1) promote a coordinated interagency approach 2) improve regulatory mechanisms, 3) manage habitat and subpopulations based on specific threats, 4) address research and monitoring needs to ensure that management of the Bi-State DPS is science-based and adaptive, and 5) advance communication among Bi-State partners and the public.
