Greater Sage Grouse Conservation Areas & Management Zones

Downloadable Data: 

The Idaho Sage Grouse Task Force (SGTF) appointed by the Governor of Idaho, created an Idaho alternative in response to the BLM's, "A Framework to Identify Greater Sage-grouse Preliminary Priority Habitat and Preliminary General Habitat for Idaho" as seen at http://www.blm.gov/pgdata/etc/medialib/blm/id/wildlife/sensitive_species/sagegrouse_habitat.Par.90238.File.dat/Idaho_Sage-grouse_Priority_Areas_White_Paper_Final_April_26_2012_508.pdf The SGTF split the BLM's designated PPH and PGH into 4 'Conservation Areas', two located North of the Snake River and two South. The Conservation Areas are split into Management Zones attributed with Core, Important, and General. This shapefile is supporting information for the content within the 'DRAFT Federal Alternative of Governor C.L. Butch Ottter For Greater Sage-Grouse Management in Idaho, June 28th, 2012' at https://fishandgame.idaho.gov/content/sites/default/files/CLBO-Draft-Sag...

This website allows you to share and search for data, maps, and documentation related to conservation projects across the country.
