NRCS Outcomes Webinar, “A Decade of Science Support in the Sagebrush Biome!”

A Decade of Science Support in the Sagebrush Biome

Thursday, November 18, 3:00-4:00 p.m. ET

 

USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has cooperatively invested in science to support conservation efforts in the sagebrush biome for the past decade. NRCS’s Working Lands for Wildlife (WLFW) and Conservation Effects Assessment Project (CEAP) work together to proactively target NRCS Farm Bill conservation investments and quantify outcomes that benefit both wildlife and agriculture in the Western sagebrush landscape. Multiple WLFW science partners have addressed threats impacting sagebrush rangelands and generated dozens of scientific publications and new conservation targeting tools. This science is summarized in a new publication, “A Decade of Science Support in the Sagebrush Biome.” More than 350 plant and animal species are benefitting from this conservation science and from the NRCS Sage Grouse Initiative’s vision of wildlife conservation through sustainable ranching, including sage-grouse, sagebrush songbirds, and migratory big-game populations.

 

This webinar will present both the science in the new publication and the most current understanding of the identified threats impacting western working sagebrush rangelands along with how to best address them through voluntary conservation actions. The webinar will be presented by Dr. David Naugle, professor of Wildlife Biology from the University of Montana and Western WLFW Science Advisor. Dr. Naugle will cover how new science and innovative tools are helping target conservation work in the sagebrush biome, conserve core areas, and scientifically quantify the outcomes of those efforts. This work provides the biological foundation for NRCS’ new 5-year WLFW Framework for Conservation Action in the Sagebrush Biome.

 

Access the full Decade of Science Support in the Sagebrush Biome report in the National Agricultural Library at https://naldc.nal.usda.gov/catalog/7488985.

 

No registration is required. Access the webinar shortly before 3:00 pm ET at: https://nrcs.adobeconnect.com/ceap2/.

 

Each webinar will be recorded and archived for later viewing on the Conservation Outcomes Webinar Series website.
