Oregon Sage-Grouse Action Plan (2015) and Oregon Greater Sage-Grouse Conservation Assessment and Strategy (2011)

The Oregon Sage-Grouse Action Plan was adopted through Governor Kate Brown’s Executive Order (EO 15-18), in preparation for the federal ESA listing determination in September 2015.  It builds upon the foundational work of the Oregon Greater Sage-Grouse Conservation Assessment and Strategy, created in 2005 and adopted by the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission in April 2011.  The Strategy will be reviewed in 2016.
