Developing a protocol to monitor management effects on priority resources in sage steppe habitat at Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge [Project Proposal]

Metadata Updated: December 11, 2019

Our purpose is to create a protocol, according to the I and M protocol handbook, for monitoring the effects of habitat management at CMR on priority resources. Fire and grazing are the 2 most significant habitat management tools available at this refuge. Of these 2, domestic livestock grazing is currently the most controllable and wide spread. CMR has a long history of grazing management and several resources that are refuge priorities that can be directly affected by grazing. Among these priorities are: greater sage grouse, sharp tailed grouse, and sage steppe vegetative communities. Furthermore, this protocol’s purpose will be to provide CMR with a monitoring tool to evaluate management for the long term, it is not intended to be applied for a one‐time experiment. Instead, the purpose of this protocol is to provide CMR staff a tool that can be used, as needed, without requiring significant additional resources (large contracts, specialists, graduate researchers, etc).
