Success Stories & Reports

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.

An interagency effort resulted in an updated Bi-State Action Plan that was released in March of 2012. Since publication, many conservation actions identified in that plan have been completed. To provide implementation accountability, progress on conservation actions and completion of projects are compiled into annual reports and posted on this website.
