Colorado Parks and Wildlife

Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) is participating in a collaborative conservation effort designed to support greater sage grouse populations and protect greater sage grouse habitat, so that there is no need for the federal government to list the bird. Recently, CPW biologists completed a map of high-priority greater sage-grouse habitat in northwestern Colorado at the request of the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. The map depicts the current distribution of the bird in Colorado, based on the best available science. It provides a biological basis for land use recommendations that focus conservation efforts on the most important habitat.
