Sagebrush Restoration Project Inching Ahead

Today BLM released the final Environmental Impact Statement for the fuels reduction and rangeland restoration project in the Great Basin.

The plan will address changes to sagebrush communities attributed to wildfires, the spread of invasive annual grasses and the encroachment of pinyon-juniper, according to the news release, using chemical and mechanical treatments, prescribed fires, seeding and targeted grazing.

BLM Deputy Director for Policy and Programs William Perry Pendley said the project will benefit those who depend on public lands in the Great Basin for their livelihoods and recreation.
