Greater Sage-Grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) Habitat Management Areas of the Great Basin Region, Idaho, Greater Sage-grouse Environmental Impact Statement (EIS)

Metadata Updated: December 4, 2020

***Update from the 2019 ROD - Management Alignment Alternative***The planning area for Sage-grouse LUP Amendment was changed to exclude SW Montana. Two changes to the habitat were made, which subsequently changed some of the allocation datasets. The areas of habitat that were changed include 1. Browns Creek area (60,706 acres) which occurs in the Owyhee Desert. It was changed from PHMA to IHMA. 2. The Donkey Hills ACEC area (11,828 acres) went from PHMA to non-habitat. Original metadata follows Christa Braun, Idaho State Office, June 2019*****************Greater Sage-Grouse Management Areas (habitat) in the Proposed Plan of the Great Basin Region, Idaho Sub-region, Greater Sage-grouse Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) as Priority, Important, and General. Management Areas were delineated by BLM, U.S. Forest Service, State of Idaho and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service based on considerations of sage-grouse occupancy, landscape, habitat and land use/adaptive management opportunities.This data was developed as the Administrative Draft Proposed Plan (ADPP). for the Great Basin Region, Idaho Sub-region, Greater Sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). This layer was edited 5/7/2015 at the WO direction to add three areas of non-habitat in the Sagebrush Focal Areas as PHMA. See procesing steps.Priority Habitat Management Areas (PHMA) have the highest conservation value based on various sage-grouse population and habitat considerations and reflect the most restrictive management designed to promote sage-grouse conservation. Important Habitat Management Areas (IHMA) are closely aligned with PHMA, but management is somewhat less restrictive, providing additional management flexibility. The General Habitat Management Areas (GHMA) designation is the least restrictive due to generally lower occupancy of sage-grouse and more marginal habitat conditions.A decision was made in September 2014 by the Washington Office that all sub-regions would use a consistent naming convention for identifying Habitat Management Areas (HMA). These are Priority Habitat Management Area (PHMA) and General Habitat Management Area (GHMA). The Idaho and Southwestern Montana sub-region has an additional HMA identified as Important Habitat Management Area (IHMA). Attributes in this layer were updated 9/26/2014. Core updated to PHMA, Important updated to IHMA, and General updated to GHMA.The layer was renamed from ManagementZones_Alt_G_05272014_Final to ManagementAreas_Alt_G_05272014_final. The field identifying the Management Areas was renamed from Management_Zone to Habitat_Management_Area.ManagementAreas_Alt_G_05272014_final renamed to Habitat_ADPP on 01212015
