The update makes minor changes to the original plan to make it more practical. Many of the changes are intended to improve the management of wolf- livestock conflicts and are based on five years of experience implementing the original Wolf Plan. The changes to the plan were the result of public outreach efforts by ODFW staff, including meetings with 14 stakeholder groups representing Tribes, con- servation groups, livestock producers, landowners and state and federal agencies. The Commission was also briefed on the Oregon Greater Sage-Grouse Conservation Assessment and Strategy planning efforts. They directed ODFW staff to continue to work with constituent groups to address their concerns about the plan. Industrial TIRE Service, Inc.
