Webinar: Greater Sage-Grouse Conservation on Montana’s Working Lands

When: Wednesday, Sep. 27, 2017  |  12:00 – 1:00 pm MST

Hosts: Saskatchewan Prairie Conservation Action Plan

Presenter: Heather Nenninger of the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service & Montana Association of Conservation Districts in Forsyth, Montana

Description: Ranchers across the West have been working with the Natural Resources Conservation Service since 2011 to improve sage grouse habitat while keeping working lands in working hands with a program known as the Sage Grouse Initiative (SGI). This partnership has led to more than 100 landowners conserving and improving over a million acres of sage-grouse habitat in Montana. In this presentation, I’ll cover how SGI has been so successful and what the next steps are.

This presentation is part of the Native Prairie Speaker Series.


The Sage Grouse Initiative is a partnership-based, science-driven effort that uses voluntary incentives to proactively conserve America’s western rangelands, wildlife, and rural way of life. This initiative is part of Working Lands For Wildlife, which is led by USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service.
