The Lakeview Sage-Grouse Conservation Strategy Implementation
Team will meet at the BLM/USFS Interagency Building, 1301 S G
Street, Lakeview on April 19, 2011 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to review
and recommend changes to the Core Area maps as defined in the March
revision of the updated Greater Sage-Grouse Conservation Assessment
and Strategy for Oregon<.
The purpose of this meeting is to provide public involvement in
refining boundaries of Core Area Maps. Any recommended changes to
the Core Area map will be forwarded to the Oregon Sage Grouse and
Sagebrush Habitat Conservation Team for review.
The meeting is open to the public, and there will be a public
Core Are Maps are used to provide guidance to land use planners,
land managers and the public as to the areas of greatest biological
importance to the persistence of sage-grouse populations. These
areas should be targeted for conservation actions or protections
when large scale disturbances are proposed. Core Area maps also
provide a broad-scale filter to assist planners, County, State and
Federal agencies to identify areas of likely high and low resource
conflicts associated with development proposals.
The Lakeview team is one of five local Teams. There is a Team
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 will be held in
each of the Implementation Team areas.
The draft plan, Greater Sage-Grouse Conservation Assessment and
Strategy for Oregon, is available on ODFW’s website.
