Conservation group to hold conference


DAVIS, Calif. — Grazing lands make up between two-thirds and three-fourths of the national land base. The wise management of these lands has environmental and economic implications that exceed common perception or understanding, according Bob Drake, chairman of the Grazing Lands Conservation Initiative.


The Grazing Lands Conservation Initiative will host its fourth national conference Dec. 13-16 in Reno, Nev. Early bird registration of $260 is available through Oct. 1.

The forum is intended to facilitate the exchange of information on successful “cutting edge” grazing management technologies — especially those with environmental and/or social benefits, applied research on grazing lands, public policy implications of grazing, issues related to the agricultural-urban interface, and the economic and marketing implications of grazing.

Some of the issues to be highlighted include the value of rotational grazing and of riparian habitat, carbon sequestration and the flexibility within grazing systems.
