A science framework for assessing threats to sagebrush ecosystems and greater sage-grouse and prioritizing conservation and restoration actions

Date: September 26, 2016
Presenter(s): Jeanne C. Chambers, Steven E. Hanser
Description: On September 26, Jeanne Chambers, U.S. Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station, and Steve Hanser, U.S. Geological Survey, discussed the tools and methods developed as part of the Science Framework for the Conservation and Restoration Strategy of Sec. Order 3336.  Department of the Interior Secretary Order 3336 called for the development of a comprehensive, science-based strategy to reduce the threat of large-scale rangeland fire to greater sage-grouse habitat and the sagebrush steppe ecosystem. The four Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) of the sagebrush steppe are pleased to bring you this presentation on the scientific tools and methods recently developed to support the implementation of the conservation strategy.  The Science Framework for the Conservation and Restoration Strategy of DOI Secretarial Order 3336, Rangeland Fire Prevention, Management and Restoration, provides a strategic, multiscale approach for prioritizing areas for management and determining effective management strategies across the sagebrush biome. This webinar was co-hosted by the Great Basin, Great Northern, Plains and Prairie Potholes and Southern Rockies Landscape Conservation Cooperatives
