The Sage Grouse Initiative (SGI) is a partnership of ranchers, agencies, universities, non-profit groups such as the Ruffed Grouse Society (RGS) and businesses that embrace a common vision: wildlife conservation through sustainable ranching. Launched by the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in 2010, SGI applies the power of the Farm Bill to fund and certify voluntary conservation projects in sage grouse strongholds across 11 western states. To date, the 1,129 ranches enrolled have conserved 4.4 million acres.

SGI partners are pooling resources, expertise and strengths to accomplish world class wildlife conservation through sustainable ranching. RGS supports SGI with communications & educational support, and RGS members participate in SGI habitat conservation projects. Unprecedented cooperation aims to recover sage grouse and sustain a healthy sagebrush-steppe using proactive conservation and win-win strategies.
