BLM extends sage grouse comment period

Public comments will now be accepted through January 15, 2016.

Cal4Wheel has participated with this effort along with BlueRibbon Coalition, in addition to the greater sage grouse effort across the 11 western states.  The “bi-state” population segment is unique to the Bridgeport region of California and east into Nevada.
