About This Site   arrow


Welcome to the Colorado Rangelands Web site! It was developed by an interdisciplinary team at Colorado State University. We are a partner in Rangelands West, which is a collaborative effort among Western Land Grant Universities to create an electronic network that will provide seamless access to distributed sources of rangeland information.

This Web site is maintained by the Colorado Rangelands Team composed of rangeland experts, extension personnel, and librarians. The Colorado Rangelands Web site is a centralized resource with an integrated interface. We are a partner in the AgNIC Alliance, which is a national effort to create an electronic network that will provide seamless access to distributed sources of agricultural information, subject area specialists, and other resources in a manner in which the physical location of these resources is transparent to the user.


Our mission is to provide electronic access to grazing land information and rangeland management resources related to Colorado. Other links from the Colorado Web site provide access to Western United States rangeland information.

Scope of Subject

Rangelands are a type of land, not a use of land. They can include woodlands, but in Colorado, rangelands are primarily grasslands and grasslands with scattered trees and shrubs, becoming more wooded as they get closer to the Rocky Mountains.
