Advancing Adoption of Agricultural Best Management Practices Through Landowner Education (ID, WY)
Provide targeted educational opportunities for agricultural producers that accelerate the adoption of farming and ranching best management practices in the Teton Watershed to benefit water quality, quantity and yellowstone cutthroat trout. Project will employ workshops and peer-to-peer education, engage 20 producers in a pilot program, improve management on 1,650 acres, reduce nitrogen and sediment runoff and increase long-term adoption of sustainable land and water management practices.

Idaho Fish and Wildlife Foundation
Managing Invasive Annual Grasses to Reduce Fire Size, Frequency and Intensity (ID)
Work collaboratively across jurisdictions in southern Idaho to implement ecologically based rangeland improvement projects to reduce the threat of annual grass invasion. Project will combat the invasion through adaptive herbicides, aerial and ground seeding and livestock management in an effort to reduce fire size, frequency and intensity.

Research Support for Management of Pollinator Species (multiple states)
Conduct research to identify priority areas for on-the-ground monarch management actions such as habitat restoration and enrichment as well as to inform regulatory review. Project will map these areas and highlight those that are most used by monarchs, recognizing that monarchs tend to migrate along riparian and wetland corridors.

Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory
Evaluating Impact of Conservation Activities on Sagebrush Obligate Songbirds (CO, ID, UT, WY)
Evaluate the impacts of conifer removal and control of annual grasses conservation projects on sagebrush obligate songbirds in the Rocky Mountain Rangelands Region. Project will provide a long-term assessment of which projects benefit sagebrush obligate songbirds and help guide future conservation investments.

The Mule Deer Foundation
Increasing Cross-Jurisdictional Coordination in Sagebrush Habitat (multiple states)
Increase cross-jurisdictional coordination with state agencies and other partners to implement projects on big game migration corridors and in sage-grouse core habitats. Project will improve habitat through treating invasive species, conservation easements, mesic and wet meadow habitat restoration, removing or improving fencing and restoring 3,000 acres of shrubland habitat.

Improving Wildlife Crossings over Highway 28 to Increase Habitat Connectivity and Driver Safety (ID)
Enhance migration corridors in the Lemhi Valley Priority Area in Idaho, improving existing conditions for a road crossing and 4 miles of fencing to reduce animal vehicle collisions with big-game and increase permeability of the crossing. Project will result in increased passage success rates and animal survivor-ship of big-game within the Lemhi Valley Complex Priority Area and surrounding habitats.

Employing Virtual Fencing Techniques to Preserve Wildlife Connectivity on Grazing Allotments (ID)
Establish targeted grazing using new technology through the Vence System that manages cattle remotely using collars with GPS sensors, virtual fencing and a mobile tracking application on the Davis Grazing Allotment in Bliss, Idaho. Project will preserve migratory corridors, big game winter range habitat and conserve sage-grouse habitat by leaving these grazing allotments unfenced.
