What is ‘Overgrazing?’

Are ranch lands critical to California’s water issues?

Twice a year, the Central Coast Rangelands Coalition meets to hear about late-breaking news and science affecting rangeland health along California’s central coast.  This is an excellent and rare opportunity to speak to leading conservation and land management groups, ranchers, biological consultants, regulatory agencies, private land owners, businesspeople, and many others actively pursuing better grassland stewardship.

This spring meeting was hosted by Joe Morris and toured the Circle P Ranch.

Participants:

  • toured a working ranch and examine rangeland management practices and discussed the resulting ecological effects of these practices with ranchers, scientists, regulatory agency personnel, and conservation lands managers
  • discussed a definition for the commonly used term ‘overgrazing’
  • heard about an initiative to document the services provided by ranch lands in sequestering carbon and providing clean water
