Promoting working landscapes and healthy rangelands through outreach and education.

Rangelands are a type of land, dominated by perennial, native, plants, that are typically too dry, or too steep for tilled agriculture. They provide forage for domestic livestock, habitat for wild herbivores like elk and deer and other species, and open space for recreation. This website contains information for ranchers, land managers, and others on managing rangelands.
