Rangeland Conservation Coalition Summit
Oakdale Community Center, Oakdale,
With rangelands returning as little as $1/acre per
year, ranchers and grazing are being replaced not only by ranchettes and
shopping malls, but by tree crops, vineyards and other types of agriculture.
This conversion is particularly evident in
California’s San Joaquin Valley, the location of the 9th Annual
Rangeland Summit. At risk is the future of California’s ranching industry and
the diverse wildlife, unique wetlands, and healthy watersheds they support.
Ranchers, researchers, land managers, conservationists
and agency representatives will convene at the state’s largest rangeland
stewardship forum to learn from one another and consider how to keep
California’s rangeland and ranches working for livestock production and conservation.
