An experimental stewardship committee will discuss sage-grouse and wild horse management when it meets April 25 at the Bureau of Land Management's Surprise Valley field office.
BLM officials will report on additional conservation measures for greater sage-grouse following severe damage to the habitat from last year's 318,400-acre Rush fire.
The changes could result in amendments affecting public lands managed by the BLM's Alturas, Eagle Lake and Surprise field offices, said Jeff Fontana, a spokesman for the federal agency.
The Modoc-Washoe Experimental Stewardship Steering Committee will also discuss wild horse and burro management in northeastern California. A committee exploring options for reopening Cedarville's lumber mill also will present a report, Fontana said.
The steering committee is one of three nationally established by Congress to advise federal officials on stewardship issues. It works on a full consensus basis to promote innovative range management approaches.
The public meeting starts at 9 a.m. at the BLM office at 602 Cressler St. in Cedarville.
