Description

 

As grazing moves increasingly beyond previously private open rangelands onto public lands – where recreation is expected to increase – encounters between livestock and recreationists are also likely to increase. California’s Central Coast is a hotspot for graziers and recreationists alike, and an important region in which to address the challenges and synergies of concurrent grazing and recreation. Conflicts between recreationists, environmentalists, and ranchers can be minimized and benefits maximized with appropriate policies and creative management. Novel approaches to public education and collaborative land management are critical to reducing negative livestock-recreation encounters and enhancing the many benefits that these land uses and ecosystem services provide.
