Description

See also: Central Coast Rangelands Coalition, Sustainable Human Systems

 

Wildlife are home on Central Coast Rangelands – how can we help wildlife, especially deer, thrive alongside profitable livestock operations?  In the fall of 2013, the Central Coast Rangeland Coalition discussed managing wildlife, with a focus on deer.  The usual mix of lands managers, livestock operators, conservationists, scientists, educators, land owners, agency personnel, and outdoors people attended and the group heard from a variety of perspectives on this subject, which is important to the group’s vision of sustaining vibrant human and ecological communities on the Central Coast’s rangelands.

 

Goal

 

To promote land management practices that provide for both the enhancement of ecological values and the preservation of Central California’s historic ranching traditions.

 

Objectives

 

Increased knowledge about how rangeland management practices affect deer populations

 

Increased knowledge about how rangeland management practices affect other wildlife populations

 

Increased knowledge of the potential economic value of game species, and learn ways to capitalize on that value.

 

Topics Discussed

 

Deer biology

 

Deer habitat management

 

Wildlife-livestock conflicts on rangelands

 

Social and economic dimensions of rangeland wildlife management
