Utah State University was founded in 1888 as Utah’s agricultural college. The university now offers programs in liberal arts, engineering, business, economics, natural resource sciences, as well as nationally ranked elementary & secondary education programs. Utah State University partners with the Sage Grouse Initiative to identify, evaluate, and document Farm Bill conservation technologies and strategies on sage grouse and other sagebrush-steppe obligates. This information has been used by other SGI partners to plan and implement habitat projects and practices on private lands to benefit sage grouse and other sagebrush-steppe obligate species.
