Sage-Grouse Implementation Team meeting to be held Jan. 24 in Jordan Valley

January 5, 2012

BEND, Ore. – The Jordan Valley Sage-Grouse Local Implementation Team will meet on Tuesday Jan. 24 from noon to 2 p.m. at the Jordan Valley Lions Club Hall, Highway 95 North, Jordan Valley.  Plans are to review Core Area and Conservation Opportunity Area maps that illustrate newly mapped action areas which  share common threats to sage-grouse and focus efforts for future habitat management actions and/or mitigation needs. The Jan. 24 meeting is a follow up to the Vale Local Implementation Team Nov. 18 meeting, which due to adverse weather conditions was lightly attended.

There are five Sage-Grouse Conservation Strategy Implementation teams, one for each Bureau of Land Management District within the current distribution of sage-grouse in Oregon as well as one in the Baker Resource Area in the Vale district. Public meetings are held in each of the Implementation Team areas periodically. The Lakeview and Vale meetings were held on Nov. 17 and Nov. 18, respectively. The Hines, Prineville, and Baker meetings were held on Dec. 6, Dec. 8, and Dec. 13, respectively. 

The Greater Sage-Grouse Conservation Assessment and Strategy for Oregon, is available on ODFW’s website in the Conservation section. Sage-grouse photos are available on ODFW’s Flickr site.
