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

A yearly virtual event for livestock and forage growers. Topics include biosecurity, emergency preparedness, AgrAbility, carbon and carbon markets, grasshoppers, market updates, and yearly climate/ weather outlooks.

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.

CO Section for the Society for Range Management Annual Meeting

Adapting to Change: Avoid, Reduce, Restore

Oct. 6-7, 2021

This year’s conference was a joint production of CSSRM and the Colorado Plateau Science and Management Forum. We explored 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.

Presentations covered strategies for avoiding and reducing land degradation and restoring degraded lands.
