The Montana Sage-Grouse Local Working Groups (MSG-LWG) produced Montana Sage-Grouse Management Plan & Conservation Strategies for Sage-Grouse in Montana (Montana SG-LWG 2005) in 2005. The overall goal of the plan is to “Provide for the long-term conservation and enhancement of the sagebrush steppe/mixed-grass prairie complex within Montana in a manner that supports sage-grouse and a healthy diversity and abundance of wildlife species and human uses.” This brochure contributes to that effort.
