Sage-grouse Local Working Group Locator

Summary

A valuable component to the range-wide sage-grouse conservation effort is a community-based process using Local Working Groups (LWG). LWG members represent a range of stakeholders including farmers, ranchers, state and federal agency staff, tribal and local governments, energy industry, environmental groups, non-governmental organizations, and other concerned citizens. Although LWGs are in all stages of development throughout the region, each group is responsible for developing a conservation plan to address the threats to sage-grouse populations and habitats in their area. LWGs will lead the implementation of these plans and adapt them as needed locally to be successful.
