The 2012 Bi-State Action Plan (BSAP) is a conservation tool that documents the coordinated efforts of Bi-State participants, the consensus of agency biologists on recommended strategies and actions for Bi-State Sage-Grouse conservation, and conservation measures that have been completed. It also provides a comprehensive framework of administrative actions, regulatory mechanisms, habitat improvement treatments, monitoring, and research in a science-based adaptive management approach.

BI-STATE ACTION PLAN IMPLEMENTATION REPORTS

In 2004, the first conservation plan for the Bi-State DPS was released, developed and driven by the Local Area Working Group (LAWG). From 2004-2011, members of the LAWG implemented the plan, quietly completing thousands of acres of habitat improvement projects.
