Northwest Colorado Greater Sage-Grouse Working Group

The Northwest Colorado Greater Sage-Grouse Working Group (GSGWG) formed in 1996 to discuss and address issues relating to sage grouse management and has worked consistently and cooperatively toward the completion and implementation of this
Conservation Plan since that time. Portions of the Conservation Plan have been in effect since early in the working group’s existence. Through an open public process based on consensus decision making, the GSGWG has established specific goals and objectives that extend across property boundaries and that view management of greater sage-grouse populations and habitats
on a landscape level to achieve the overall mission of the Plan. Annual working group meetings, work plans and accomplishment reports will monitor progress toward meeting the goals of the Plan. It is important to note that this Conservation Plan must be a dynamic document, incorporating principles of adaptive management and evolving as new information arises, to be successful. Management strategies and recommendations will be updated to incorporate results of local studies, new information, and management successes and failures during annual review meetings.
