Populations of Greater Sage-grouse have declined across the entire range of the species and habitat loss is considered to be the most important factor contributing to these declines (e.g., Connelly et al. 2004). Agricultural conversion, energy development, feral horses, and livestock grazing are hypothesized to contribute to habitat related threats (Range wide interagency sage grouse conservation team 2012). Substantial research has been completed to assess the effects of energy development (e.g., Walker et al. 2007) and agricultural conversion (e.g., Aldridge et al. 2008), yet, little research has been devoted to understanding the impacts of grazing by feral horses and livestock on sage-grouse demography.The Sheldon-Hart...

This data set was created to facilitate the BLM Greater Sage-Grouse Land Use Planning Strategy – Utah Sub-Region addresses preparation of an environmental impact statement to consider amendments to 14 BLM land use plans throughout the State of Utah, as well as 6 Forest Service land use plans. This planning process was initiated through issuance of a Notice of Intent published on December 6, 2011. The purpose of the planning process is to address protection of greater sage-grouse, in partial response to a March 2010 decision by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) that found the greater sage-grouse was eligible for listing under the authorities of the Endangered Species Act. The planning process will prepare...

Greater Sage Grouse range-wide breeding density at 25% (BreedingDensity25) of breeding population. ESRI file geodatabase of greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) range-wide breeding densities at 25% (BreedingDensity25), 50% (BreedingDensity50), 75% (BreedingDensity75) and 100% (BreedingDensity100) of breeding population. The objective of this BLM project is to map high breeding densities of greater sage-grouse for use in conservation planning. This completion report provides two deliverables: 1) The analytical framework for evaluating options on where partners can deliver actions that will yield the highest return on their conservation investment, and 2) The GIS shapefiles delineating high breeding densities...

Sage Grouse datasets to produce PGH and PPH by March 1, 2012. DRAFT on 2-28-2012 by ELFO GIS Specialist, Ralph Wagnitz - includes edits from Arlene Kosic/Shawn Thornton. Sage Grouse data for the Eagle Lake Field Office, Alturas Field Office, Surprise Field Office for the RMP amendments process December 2011.
This project will to improve the irrigated meadows on the Cokeville Meadows National Wildlife Refuge (NWR). Engineering and design will be provided to improve the condition of unused irrigation systems and pumps and to install additional head gates and dikes. Rehabilitation of about 7 miles of dike for the B-Q Canal; creating a grass bank at Cokeville Meadows NWR; planting and weed control will restore 1,300 acres of irrigated hay meadows on the Refuge that are currently unproductive; monitoring elk movement east of NWR. This project will improve irrigation efficiency and flooding of approximately 1,300 acres of hay meadows that are currently unproductive. These improvements will increase nesting habitat for the...
FY2014This projects main goals are to assess the effects of grazing by feral horses and livestock on Greater Sage-grouse demography and habitats. The Sheldon-Hart Mountain National Wildlife Refuge Complex and adjacent lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management provide the unique opportunity to assess sage-grouse populations free of feral horses and livestock grazing, populations that only have feral horses, as well as populations that coincide with both livestock grazing and feral horses. The project team will:1)Use historical sage-grouse data collected from Hart Mountain before and immediately after livestock were removed in the early 1990s, and historical data from Sheldon before the irruption of feral horses...

There is a critical need to increase the level of control to minimize the economic and ecological impacts that invasive species cause. BLM has a commitment to Sweetwater County and private adjacent land owners for controlling weeds. Control of noxious weeds is a priority within the local county and the Bureau. Native wildlife species, including elk, mule deer, greater sage-grouse, mountain plovers, raptors, Colorado River cutthroat trout and many juniper obligates, are dependent on native vegetation for successful breeding, nesting, and food. Protection of their habitats is of primary importance. One community at risk is riparian habitat where invasive weeds are displacing native species. Weeds affect streams by...

The strategy for this project will incorporate Fall and Spring treatments of BLM approved herbicide on approximately 100 acres. Following treatments will not exceed 1000 acres per treatment year. The Sublette County Weed and Pest is also providing support for this project through aerial, roadside, and follow-up backpack applications. They are also supplying herbicides for the initial treatment. Habitat classification are mixed cool season grasses, Big Sagebrush communities, winter range for Mule Deer, moose, pygmy rabbit, and brood rearing habitat for sage-grouse. This area is not an active allotment; however, due to treatment timing grazing will not be affected. Livestock management will not be affected but grazing...

This presentation aired as part of the Great Basin LCC webinar series on November 1, 2017. The presentation was given by Dr. Jim Sedinger and Phillip Street of University of Nevada Reno and Shawn Espinosa of the Nevada Department of Wildlife.Description: This project uses management-related variation in grazing by both feral horses and livestock as well as five years of field work to assess how both Greater Sage-grouse and the habitats on which they depend might be influenced by grazing. The research team monitored radio-tagged sage-grouse and vegetation on Hart Mountain and Sheldon National Wildlife Refuges as well as lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) south and west of Sheldon from 2013-2016....

Data Assumption notes: Sherm Karl, We can only assume the data are as current as 2007. Additional allotments have been assessed since then, but we do not have this information in a national data set, so we should date this as the 2008 assessmentAlso, here are some assumptions I made regarding allotments that have more than 1 authorization within them, and how they were identified as either being 1) allotments that have not achieved a habitat land health standard and livestock grazing (historic or current) is a causal factor in the non-achievement; and 2) allotments that have not yet been evaluated for land health.Utah—Some allotments had multiple authorizations. Some of the authorizations within the allotment had...

Project Synopsis: Raven control (removal) efforts of varying intensity have been carried out around lambing grounds in Lincoln, Sweetwater, Uinta, and Carbon counties in Wyoming by United States Department of Agriculture/Wildlife Services (WS). This has provided a unique opportunity to study the potential effects of raven removal on sage-grouse nest success. Increased anthropogenic development (energy development and urbanization) may have a negative impact on sage-grouse nesting success and productivity as a result of increased raven populations and raven depredation of sage-grouse nests. Structures associated with anthropogenic development may provide perches that ravens need to forage or ravens may be drawn...
