Stewardship Action Plans

A Stewardship Action Plan (SAP) is an adaptive management plan prepared by staff that describes the board’s comprehensive vision, objectives, strategies, and best management practices for responsible stewardship of a particular important target plant and/or animal species occurring at a landscape scale on numerous, non-contiguous state trust lands.  

The Greater Sage Grouse SAP was adopted by our board in 2016 and the Lesser Prairie Chicken SAP was adopted in June 2020.

SAPs are planned for Gunnison Sage Grouse, Extreme Rich Fens, and Piedmont Grassland.  

View the drafted fen SAP. We welcome our lessee's feedback on this plan. We hosted a virtual meeting with lessees in August 2020 to discuss the drafted plan and hear feedback; you can watch a recording of that meeting. Contact Mindy Gottsegen at if you would like to submit additional feedback. We will be presenting the plan to our board at the September 2020 meeting.
