USDA announces expanded four-year agreement to advance more sage-grouse habitat improvements.
February 15, 2015
Since 2010, 4.4 million acres of habitat for sage-grouse have been maintained across the West through efforts coordinated by USDA, its partners and private landowners, the agency says. And through the provisions of the 2014 farm bill, USDA says it will invest in new sage-grouse conservation work over the next four years.
"Thanks to the interest from ranchers and support of our conservation partners, USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service is working to secure this species' future while maintaining our vibrant western economies," Under Secretary for Natural Resources and Environment Robert Bonnie said in a statement.
