The purpose of this plan is to facilitate the conservation of greater sage-grouse and their habitats in Colorado. It identifies conservation measures and strategies to achieve this purpose. The plan is guided by the philosophy that local work groups, composed of private landowners, public agency representatives, and other interested stakeholders, play a pivotal role in this conservation effort. The plan provides a statewide perspective to help ensure the long-term survival of greater sage-grouse and will supplement, not replace, local plans and the locally driven process that created them.
