Natural Resources Conservation Service

In March 2010, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service launched the Sage Grouse Initiative to provide a holistic approach to conserving sage grouse and sustaining working ranches in the West. NRCS and its partners are using popular Farm Bill conservation programs to improve wildlife habitat through sustainable agriculture.
