NRCS and Montana sign agreement to further sage grouse conservation efforts
Seventy percent of sage grouse habitat occurs on private or state lands in Montana.
The state of Montana, USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and the Soil and Water Conservation Districts of Montana, Inc. (SWCDMI) signed an agreement to enhance joint efforts to conserve working rangelands providing sage grouse habitat.
The agreement will enable partners to better explore innovative approaches to sage grouse habitat conservation and management, promote voluntary and incentive-based approaches for delivery, and strategically align their collective resources to alleviate threats facing sage grouse and ranching.
