Description

See also: Central Coast Rangelands Coalition, Sustainable Human Systems

Coastal scrub and coastal grassland habitats are both ecologically important and have been diminishing over time due to human development.  On October 18, 2012, the Central Coast Rangeland Coalition discussed the ecological and economic value of coastal grasslands, the influence of shrub establishment in those grasslands, and different approaches to maintain important grassland habitat.

The 103 participants that day had the opportunity to exchange ideas and hear a variety of perspectives.  For those of you who are not familiar with the Central Coast Rangeland Coalition, the group is a community of ranchers, conservationists, agency personnel, researchers, teachers, consultants, regulators, planners, and many others.  The group typically gathers each spring and fall to better understand one another, to build the social and economic ties as well as the ecological understanding necessary for better managing rangelands.

Many thanks to the Point Reyes National Seashore and the Grossi Family for such a successful day!
