SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Greater Sage-Grouse is a State-managed species that is dependent on sagebrush steppe ecosystems. These ecosystems are managed in partnership across the range of the Greater Sage-Grouse by State wildlife agencies, Federal agencies, local communities, private landowners, and other stakeholders. Since the 1950s these partners have collaborated to conserve Greater Sage-Grouse and its habitats. The U.S. Department of the Interior and the BLM have broad responsibilities to manage Federal lands and resources for the public benefit. Nearly half of Greater Sage-Grouse habitat is managed by the BLM. The BLM is committed to being a good neighbor and investing in on-the-ground conservation activities through close collaboration with State governments, local communities, private landowners, and other stakeholders. PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 10183 In 2019 the BLM Colorado State Director signed the Record of Decision and Approved the Northwest Colorado Greater Sage-Grouse Resource Plan Amendment (84 FR 10327), building upon the BLM’s commitment to conserve and restore Greater SageGrouse habitat while improving collaboration and alignment with State management strategies for Greater SageGrouse. The BLM sought to improve management alignment in ways that would increase management flexibility, maintain access to public resources, and promote conservation outcomes. The Draft Supplemental EIS will supplement and clarify the analysis relied on in the 2019 BLM Northwest Colorado Record of Decision, including with respect to the BLM considering a range of reasonable alternatives, taking a ‘‘hard look’’ at environmental effects, and evaluating cumulative impacts. Through the Draft Supplemental EIS, the BLM will also allow for additional public comment on the BLM’s approach to compensatory mitigation and Greater Sage-Grouse habitat conservation. The Colorado planning area analyzed in this Supplemental EIS includes approximately 15 million acres of BLM, National Park Service, U.S. Forest Service, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, State, local, and private lands in 10 counties: Eagle, Garfield, Grand, Jackson, Larimer, Mesa, Moffat, Rio Blanco, Routt, and Summit. Also analyzed is the cumulative effects across the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies’ Management Zone and entire Greater Sage-Grouse range. The BLM administers approximately 8.5 million acres of public lands within this area, providing approximately 3.7 million acres of Greater Sage-Grouse habitat.
