The Massacre Sage Grouse Population Management Unit encompasses almost 2,000 square miles of sage grouse habitat in north central Washoe County. Sage Grouse in this population management unit occur over a large geographic area with little or no occurrence of habitat fragmentation. Over 80 percent of the land in this PMU is under federal ownership and is managed by the Bureau of Land Management. No large-scale changes in land management practices are anticipated for this PMU. This analysis of factors in the Massacre PMU indicates a low probability of extirpation within the next 20 years.
