Interpretive Summary: The Great Basin area of the western United States faces a host of challenges and threats to the health of the ecosystem including invasion of exotic annual grasses, altered fire cycles and juniper encroachment. There is substantial and growing concern over a number of sagebrush obligate wildlife species and greater sage-grouse have become the cumulative face of these concerns. This video discusses the need to address sage-grouse management concerns within an ecosystem management framework which can benefit all the goods and services the land supplies, including habitat for sage-grouse.
