NEPA for Ranchers

If NEPA (or the National Environmental Policy Act) is not your favorite topic, you might be normal.

However, the outcome of a NEPA document can influence the future of your ranch if you graze on a BLM allotment or USFS permit.

If you depend on public lands for grazing, these two resources can help empower you to navigate the NEPA process.

  • A Rancher’s Guide to NEPA and Permit Renewals 

  • This guide explains what NEPA  is, the importance of your participation in the process, how NEPA applies to grazing allotments/permits, and how to participate. This guide also includes a case-study. Put together by Professors and Extension staff at the University of Arizona in collaboration with Action Analysis Partners, LLC and DC Cattle Company.
