Grazing Management for Riparian-Wetland Areas

A 3-day course titled Grazing Management for Riparian-Wetland Areas offers a curriculum, designed by the Riparian Coordination Network, which complements the Interagency Technical Reference 1737-20 titled "Grazing Management Processes and Strategies for Riparian-Wetland Areas." The intent of this course is to facilitate the application of the principles and practices of riparian compatible livestock grazing by establishing a foundation of understanding upon which people can collectively address opportunities and solve problems. Attendees learn to develop riparian resource objectives and design grazing management strategies that are practical and foster sustainable conditions. Collaborative planning, the need for focused monitoring, and adaptive management are emphasized, along with success through operator commitment.
