    WDARM Sage-grouse Conservation Plan

    A note about the WDARM plan: This is an adaptive plan, it will be reviewed annually and therefore is likely to be amended, changed, updated, and reported upon but it will not be ignored and just put on the shelf as a monumental accomplishment of those involved.
