Between June 6th and July 16th, 2012, more than 132,000 acres of sagebrush-steppe across southern Idaho were consumed by wildland fire. The complex ecological relationship between sagebrush and wildland fire is in the spotlight this year, as the BLM works to keep the Greater sage-grouse off the list of Threatened and Endangered species. Conserving remaining sage-grouse habitat, the agency believes, is the way to conserve the species - and the key to continuing to manage sage-lands for multiple-use. Identifying intact habitat is the first step in conserving it.
