Webinar Coming Soon: A Decade of Science Support in the Sagebrush Biome

Thu, 04 Nov 2021 11:05:23 CDT

Webinar Coming Soon: A Decade of Science Support in the Sagebrush Biome USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has cooperatively invested in science to support conservation efforts in the sagebrush biome for the past decade. This science is summarized in a new publication, “A Decade of Science Support in the Sagebrush Biome.”

This is part of a monthly webinar series that highlights recent outcomes, emerging opportunities, and conservation tools and data developed to assist with conservation planning and impact and efficiency assessment. The series illustrates the scope of Farm Bill conservation efforts on privately owned croplands, forests, and rangelands; documents the conservation achievements and outcomes of those efforts; and shows the utility of science-based outcomes for helping inform future conservation delivery.

This webinar is set to take place at 3 p.m. ET Thursday, Nov. 18 via Adobe Connect. It will present both the science in the new publication and the most current understanding of the identified threats impacting western working sagebrush rangelands along with how to best address them through voluntary conservation actions.

Multiple Working Lands for Wildlife (WLFW) science partners have addressed threats impacting sagebrush rangelands and generated dozens of scientific publications and new conservation targeting tools. More than 350 plant and animal species are benefitting from this conservation science and from the NRCS Sage Grouse Initiative’s vision of wildlife conservation through sustainable ranching, including sage-grouse, sagebrush songbirds, and migratory big-game populations.

This webinar will present both the science in the new publication and the most current understanding of the identified threats impacting western working sagebrush rangelands along with how to best address them through voluntary conservation actions. The webinar will be presented by Dr. David Naugle, professor of Wildlife Biology from the University of Montana and Western WLFW Science Advisor. Dr. Naugle will cover how new science and innovative tools are helping target conservation work in the sagebrush biome, conserve core areas, and scientifically quantify the outcomes of those efforts. This work provides the biological foundation for NRCS’ new 5-year WLFW Framework for Conservation Action in the Sagebrush Biome.
