Do you wish you’d kept track of changes on landscapes you manage? Did you mean to take photos of your allotments and never quite get around to it?

The Rangeland Analysis Platform is a new tool that allows you to access
decades of data on rangelands in a few minutes.

Join us and learn how to use it
to inform management on allotments, pastures, for drought planning and more.

Livestock and Forage Grower Update

Join us on the morning of February 17th, 2022. from 9 – 12.  Watch virtually, or come to a live watch party. There are locations available around the state, including Grand Junction, Steamboat and Dove Creek, CO. Topics include Wolves in Colorado, AgrAbility, Carbon and Carbon Markets, Grasshoppers, Market Updates, and NOAA on the Climate/ Weather Outlook in 2022.

Drought Leadership Training

We can’t control drought. But we can change how it impacts our agricultural operations.  Join us for a pilot Drought Leadership Training Series. This is a hybrid program that combines virtual and in-person training opportunities, specifically for retail agriculture, agricultural services, extension, or with agriculture-focused agencies/organizations.

This series is free and sponsored by a grant from the Colorado Department of Agriculture.

Adapting to Change: Avoid, Reduce, Restore

Oct. 6-7, 2021

This year’s conference is a joint production of CSSRM and the Colorado Plateau Science and Management Forum. We will explore what is known about the future impacts of aridification to western Colorado rangelands and how we can adapt and build resilience. The theme of “Avoid, Reduce, Restore” is a framework for thinking about how to respond strategically to future and current challenges like aridification and climate change.

Join us to explore strategies for avoiding and reducing land degradation and restoring degraded lands.
