Rangeland Monitoring in Western Uplands

Rangelands, including grazeable forests, cover a vast portion of the western United States, including parts of Alaska and Hawaii. They provide resources for many interests including ranching, recreation, timber, and wildlife habitat. It is important that our rangelands be well managed to sustain benefits for present and future generations. Hard-working ranchers are constantly making management decisions about how to use and sustain the rangeland resource. One very important way to care for and maintain rangeland resources is to monitor the success of ranch management decisions. For this reason, Rangeland Monitoring in Western Uplands was created. This web resource is a learning module that was developed at the University of Arizona to provide interactive instruction for ranch owners and land managers.

 

The purpose of this learning module is to assist you in collecting the data needed to demonstrate whether or not management objectives are being met.
