The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Shoshone Field Office is developing the Draft Craters of the Moon National Monument & Preserve Plan Amendment to consider a range of reasonable alternatives for livestock grazing within the Monument on BLM-managed lands. We are analyzing grazing management alternatives that are consistent with the goals for greater sage-grouse outlined in the BLM’s current policies regarding greater sage-grouse, the existing objectives for vegetation and wildlife resource management as identified in the Desired Future Conditions (DFCs) in the 2007 Craters of the Moon Monument and Preserve Management Plan (MMP), Idaho’s Standards for Rangeland Health, and other relevant agency policies and guidance related to livestock grazing and greater sage-grouse.

The Shoshone Field Office has concluded public scoping in August of 2013. The Final Scoping Report is located under the Documents link at the left. The Plan Amendment Analysis of the Management Situation is also available in the Documents section.
