Sage-Grouse Initiative - Idaho Updated:12/2020

NRCS developed the Sage-grouse Initiative to help private landowners voluntarily conserve sage-grouse populations and habitat on their working lands.  In Idaho, NRCS identified potential threats to sage-grouse and their habitat and determined specific conservation practices to reduce those threats.  Technical and financial assistance through EQIP and WHIP is available for implementing the specific practices.

The ultimate goal of the Initiative is to help ensure sustainable use of good sagebrush habitat by both ranchers and wildlife such as the sage-grouse.

To alleviate threats that are within the control of the rancher, NRCS Idaho will be working with private landowners to implement these practices:
