Upper Snake River Basin Sage Grouse working group to hold meeting January 14
JACKSON – The Upper Snake River Basin Sage-grouse Working Group will hold a public meeting to solicit comment for their Sage-Grouse Conservation Plan update.
There will be an open house public meeting to discuss the revised plan from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 14, at the Wyoming Game and Fish Office in Jackson (420 North Cache Street).
Interested persons can find the updated plan online at: http://wgfd.wyo.gov/web2011/wildlife-1000817.aspx#. The original plan, Upper Snake River Basin Sage-Grouse Conservation Plan, also can be found at that website. The Upper Snake River Basin Sage-Grouse working group is one of eight local working groups statewide. Each is composed of citizens representing various stakeholder groups interested in sage-grouse conservation and associated land management issues. The group has already developed and initiated a conservation plan to benefit sage-grouse and, when feasible, other species that use sagebrush habitats.
The Wyoming Game and Fish Department asked each local working group to update their sage-grouse plans to reflect new policies and information that have become available since the plans were originally completed in 2007. Chief among these are the Governor’s Sage-Grouse Executive Order(s), the BLM’s Instructional Memorandum, and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service’s 2010 threatened and endangered species listing decision in 2010. The Addendum also updates details on sage-grouse conservation practices that the group has prioritized for funding via the legislature’s biennial sage-grouse conservation fund appropriation to each local working group.
