This guide is intended to provide information on active stakeholder interest groups focused on restoration of sagebrush ecosystems in the Great Basin region. It is based on a comprehensive search of internet websites, recently filed litigation records, previous interviews, and discussions with land managers in the region. The information contained in the guide is representative of the general environment in which restoration activities are conducted in the six states comprising the SageSTEP project, and is not meant to be an all-inclusive listing of groups. All efforts were made to identify groups most active and thus most pertinent to land managers and researchers in the region. There undoubtedly exist additional groups active on a more local level, which are equally as significant to restoration activities as those identified here. The guide, as developed, is intended to be particularly useful for those working in fuels treatments and NEPA issues.
