The Sagebrush Steppe is Diminishing in Idaho

Nathan Gregson is joined by Matt Lucia, the Executive Director of Sagebrush Steppe Land Trust located in Pocatello, to discuss the diminishing sagebrush steppe landscape.

They discuss The Sagebrush Steppe Land Trust, how the “Sagebrush Sea” is vanishing in Idaho, and how this adversely affects us as Idaho residents. It’s a benefit to us all to keep the sagebrush ecosystem healthy with sustainability efforts to reduce the spread of wildfires in the plains throughout Idaho and keep the wildlife that live there healthy. If we don't, farmers and people in Idaho’s cities will suffer the consequences posed by the loss of the sagebrush ecosystem.
