Colorado Conservation Plan for Grassland Species
  • Goal:“ The goal of the plan is to insure at a minimum, the viability of the black-tailed prairie dog and associated species (Mountain Plover, Burrowing Owl, swift fox and Ferruginous Hawk) and provide mechanisms to manage for populations beyond minimum levels, where possible , while addressing the interests and rights of private landowners”.

The plan includes a continuous process of planning, acting, monitoring and evaluating designed to take into account changes in ecological and social systems, identify and evaluate new information, and make adjustments in actions to achieve specific goals and objectives
