Site Management Plans

Site Management Plans are optional tools used to address the management of an individual population or site, or a collection of sites with similar characteristics. The "site" or area to be managed is defined by the field unit personnel responsible for managing the particular population/individual site. Site Management Plans are typically developed for those species/habitats that require active management of the site in order to meet the desired goal for the species/habitat. The Plans are usually very specific as to what management actions need to occur, where, and what the timeline is for each action. Actions may include the use of fire, the removal of vegetation including noxious weeds, road closures, seasonal restrictions, etc. A standardized Site Management Plan Format has been developed and is posted below. Field units are encouraged to use this Format when developing a Site Management Plan.
