WEST was contracted by LPC Conservation LLC to create a user-friendly preliminary project evaluation tool to support lesser prairie-chicken conservation. This tool aims to assess how infrastructure associated with proposed energy projects could affect lesser prairie-chicken habitat. The project evaluation tool is designed following methods outlined in the US Fish and Wildlife Service’s framework and two existing Habitat Conservation Plans for evaluating impacts of infrastructure on lesser prairie-chicken habitat. This tool will provide users with initial insights about how a proposed infrastructure project may influence existing conservation strategies for lesser prairie-chicken.
