Protect Habitat for Greater Sage-Grouse | Montana Audubon

Montana Audubon

Montana Audubon works at the local, state and national policy levels to protect our natural heritage.

Protect Habitat for Greater Sage-Grouse

The survival of Greater Sage-Grouse is deeply tied to the availability of healthy sagebrush habitat. A recent report found that 1.3 million acres of functioning sagebrush habitat are lost every year across the West.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is requesting public input as they work to finalize management plans for more than 67 million acres of public lands where most of the sage-grouse are found. In Montana, the BLM’s proposed plan will greatly impact land use and management in the High Divide area in the Southwest and a large area of core Sage-Grouse habitat in Southern Valley and Phillips counties.

Montana Audubon is working with state and regional partners to educate and mobilize stakeholders and advocate for management actions that will stem the tide of sagebrush habitat loss.

The deadline to comment is June 13.
