Greater Sage-Grouse Habitat Management Areas of the Great Basin Region, Idaho-SW Montana Sub-region, Greater Sage-grouse Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) - Administrative Draft Proposed Plan, as updated for inclusion of Sage brush Focal Areas.
U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI), Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Idaho State Office

Greater Sage-Grouse Management Areas (habitat) in the Proposed Plan of the Great Basin Region, Idaho-SW Montana Sub-region, Greater Sage-grouse Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) as Priority, Important, and General. Management Areas were delineated by BLM, U.S. Forest Service, State of Idaho and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service based on considerations of sage-grouse occupancy, landscape, habitat and land use/adaptive management opportunities.

This data was developed as the Administrative Draft Proposed Plan (ADPP). for the Great Basin Region, Idaho-SW Montana Sub-region, Greater Sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). This layer was edited 5/7/2015 at the WO direction to add three areas of non-habitat in the Sagebrush Focal Areas as PHMA. See procesing steps.

Priority Habitat Management Areas (PHMA) have the highest conservation value based on various sage-grouse population and habitat considerations and reflect the most restrictive management designed to promote sage-grouse conservation. Important Habitat Management Areas (IHMA) are closely aligned with PHMA, but management is somewhat less restrictive, providing additional management flexibility. The General Habitat Management Areas (GHMA) designation is the least restrictive due to generally lower occupancy of sage-grouse and more marginal habitat conditions.

A decision was made in September 2014 by the Washington Office that all sub-regions would use a consistent naming convention for identifying Habitat Management Areas (HMA). These are Priority Habitat Management Area (PHMA) and General Habitat Management Area (GHMA). The Idaho and Southwestern Montana sub-region has an additional HMA identified as Important Habitat Management Area (IHMA). Attributes in this layer were updated 9/26/2014. Core updated to PHMA, Important updated to IHMA, and General updated to GHMA.The layer was renamed from ManagementZones_Alt_G_05272014_Final to ManagementAreas_Alt_G_05272014_final. The field identifying the Management Areas was renamed from Management_Zone to Habitat_Management_Area.

ManagementAreas_Alt_G_05272014_final renamed to Habitat_ADPP on 01212015

Wildlife Management Areas (New 05/12/2015)
Idaho Department of Fish and Game

Various private, state, and federal entities have entered into agreements with or sold lands to IDFG for the management of the state's fish and wildlife. Each property agreement/lease/deed/easement/permit in Bob Martin's (IDFG) Lands database was mapped based on their legal descriptions. Various layers were used to help digitize each area: township range section, geographic names, ITD roads, FS roads, hydrography, land ownership, county boundaries, etc. Properties were combined (via dissolve) based on property name to create the polygons for each WMA.

Sagebrush Focal Areas 20150501 (Updated 05/01/2015)
U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI), Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Idaho State Office

Sagebrush Focal Areas (SFAs) are a refinement of Greater Sage Grouse habitat delineating the most valuable habitat to the Greater Sage Grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus). They are a subset of the "Highly Important Landscapes" identified by the US Fish and Wildlife Service October, 2014. This dataset is a further refinement of the data layer, "SFA_Draft_January_2015_DIS" released by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) National Operations Center (NOC) in January, 2015. The SFAs were identified to further protect highly valuable sage grouse habitat and develop conservation strategies as described in the Administrative Draft Proposed Plan (ADPP) for the Idaho and Southwestern Montana Greater Sage Grouse Environmental Impact Statement. The lineage section describes the processing that was done to, "SFA_Draft_January_2015_DIS" layer. No SFA was delineated in the SW Montana or USFS Raft River Unit in Utah for the Idaho and SW Montana GRSG Sub-region. The SFAs are a subset of PHMA, and include three areas of previously non-designated habitat to create a cohesive block of conservation areas. SFA is limited to BLM and FS lands and BLM subsurface. It does not include all PHMA identified in the subregion.
