  • NWF, affiliates: Let sage-grouse conservation plans work | Our Public Lands
    House Committee on Armed Services the organizations detailed the problems with a section in the National Defense Authorization Act that would block plans to conserve sage grouse across the West The bird s population once in the millions has dropped to a total of less than a half million in 11 Western states The provision is similar to a bill proposed earlier this year and language that was eventually deleted from last year s defense bill The organizations noted the conservation plans approved by the Bureau of Land Management and U S Forest Service were developed with input from states and private landowners Failure to carry out the plans would only make the species situation more dire while stripping away the policy measures in place to ensure its survival the groups wrote Last September the U S Fish and Wildlife Service was able to avoid placing the bird on the Endangered Species List because of the safeguards in state and federal conservation plans The provision in the defense bill would bar Fish and Wildlife from making a decision on the sage grouse s status for 10 years and impose unprecedented limits on federal agencies ability to manage the bird and its habitat Just like last year some lawmakers are using concerns about national security as a pretext to prevent the implementation of federal plans to conserve sage grouse and the sagebrush steppe And just like last year the arguments for adding this language to the defense bill are groundless Meanwhile the clock is ticking on the bird s fate says Clare Bastable NWF s public lands program director Bastable notes that the provision s proponents contend the sage grouse plans would jeopardize military training and operations in the bird s habitat but defense officials once again have said the plans

  • Sportsmen fend off public-land grabs, but more work remains | Our Public Lands
    Despite being soundly defeated in 2015 and receiving the clear message that citizens of all stripes adamantly oppose public lands being transferred to states the ideological pro transfer crowd again used their misguided allies in state legislatures to introduce more bad bills in 2016 They floated cookie cutter legislation on several fronts that sought to either functionally or philosophically derail land management and grab more power for states despite the states lacking the will expertise or budgets to do so Fortunately for all of us who love and rely on public lands as the backbone to our communities economies and traditions very few of these bills even got a hearing much less passed out of the respective legislatures We showed up in droves every time legislators proposed a bad bill every time proponents were given the floor to promote the folly of public land transfer and we flooded the newspapers and airwaves at every decisive moment The result was a sound defeat but the work is not done The charge remains strong for continued vigilance in protecting our public lands heritage As sportsmen we know all too well what a loss of our national public lands would mean to our cherished traditions Those prized quiet mornings in the fall would be few and far between those serene moments when the flash of silver and gold erupts from the depths to meet a carefully placed fly would be much harder to come by the look in our children s eyes on their first hunt or with their first fish could be lost and with these cherished moments would also go the collective soul of our outdoor culture This year sportsmen and other conservationists rallied from Seattle pictured to Santa Fe in support of public lands Image Les Welsh Targeting the land

  • BLM cancels disputed oil, gas lease in Montana's Badger-Two Medicine | Our Public Lands
    area near Glacier National Park Image Montana Wildlife Federation MISSOULA MONT More than three decades of work to protect the Badger Two Medicine area just south of Glacier National Park have paid off The Interior Department Thursday announced the cancelation of an oil and gas lease in a remote part of the Lewis and Clark National Forest that is home to grizzlies wolves lynx wolverines elk and deer and is sacred to the Blackfeet tribes Interior officials said the Bureau of Land Management concluded the lease approved in 1982 was issued in violation of the National Environmental Policy and National Historical Preservation acts The National Wildlife Federation Montana Wildlife Federation and the Blackfeet tribe were among those who sued to repeal leases and prevent drilling in Badger Two Medicine The area is at the intersection of the Blackfeet Reservation Glacier National Park and the Bob Marshall Wilderness This is a signal victory for wildlife conservation wildland protection and tribal religious interests said Tom France executive director of the NWF Northern Rockies Regional Center The BLM s decision cancels a lease held by Solenex LLC which will receive a refund of 31 235 In the 1990s the U S Forest Service decided not to authorize any new leases in a 356 000 acre area along the Rocky Mountain Front including Badger Two Medicine Based on the area s natural and cultural values Congress withdrew the public lands from oil and gas leasing in 2006 Several leaseholders received tax incentives to relinquish their leases but Solenex sued over the delays in approval of its drilling permit The Badger Two Medicine is an exquisite piece of public land just to the south of Glacier National Park and west of the Blackfeet Indian Reservation It is a land of grizzly bears and wolves elk
