SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Intact sagebrush communities are disappearing within the Great Basin due to the interactions of increased wildfires, the spread of invasive annual grasses, and the encroachement of pinyon-juniper. Fuels reduction treatments and rangeland restoration treatments are needed to increase intact sagebrush communities and improve their ability to resist annual grass invasion and recover from disturbance such as wildfire. Functioning and viable sagebrush communities provide multiple-use opportunities for all user groups as well as habitat for sagebrushdependent species. The Programmatic EIS analzyes the environmental effects of fuels reduction projects, invasive species treatments, and vegetation restoration work within sagebrush communities. The preferred alternative (Alternative B) analyzes a full suite of manual, chemical and mechanical treatments, including prescribed fire, seeding, and targeted grazing, in order to restore degraded vegetative communities within the 38.5 million-acre sagebrush analysis area. The preferred alternative provides a framework under which BLM offices may work to develop site-specific fuels reduction and rangeland restoration treatments within the project area.

The BLM hosted a virtual public meeting website to share information about the proposed project and alternatives and to answer questions. The public was able to comment online through ePlanning, through the virtual public meeting website, via a project email address, or by postal mail. The BLM received 1,270 comment form letters and 144 unique comment letters. Comments on the Draft Programmatic EIS received from the public and internal BLM review were considered and incorporated as appropriate into the Final Programmatic EIS.
