Riparian Area Management: Grazing Management for Riparian-Wetland Areas


This material was originally issued in 1989 as BLM Technical Reference 1737-4, Grazing Management in Riparian Areas, by Gene Kinch. Most of the information in the original reference is as valid today as it was in 1989, and therefore, is included in this document. Since 1989, numerous management actions have been implemented and evaluated, literature has been produced, and policies have emerged, and this information has been added to the original material. We hope the additional information will enhance the reader’s ability to develop and implement successful riparian grazing management strategies over the full spectrum of land ownership and land types.
