Designation would have severely restricted OHV recreation in Nevada and eastern California
The US Fish and Wildlife Service announce plans to withdraw a propose rule to extend Endangered Species Act protections to a distinct population of greater sage grouse found only along the California-Nevada border.
After a yearlong review of the bi-state Sage Grouse population, the FWS has determined that the threats are no longer as significant as was believed when FWS first proposed listing the bird as a threatened species in 2013.
The Cal4Wheel website is now hosting a fairly comprehensive Glossary of Landuse and Environmental
Terms. (https://cal4wheel.com/access-advocacy/glossary). I have been working on
this glossary for the past 15 years by compiling terms and definitions from a variety of landuse
documents. It is now in a format that is relatively easy to update with new terms and is a good
fit for the Cal4Wheel Access Advocacy section of the website. If you encounter any terms you
do not understand, send me a note and I will get it added to the glossary.
