What do Ranchers do?
Ranchers are stewards of rangeland. Whether it’s their privately owned property or acres they lease from a federal agency, they do all they can to mitigate natural events such as floods, fire, and climate disasters. Rangeland management is a set of policies and procedures to maximize the conservation of water and soil resources. The goal is to improve the ecological system to sustain vegetation, cattle, and wildlife.
Here we describe some of the techniques that work best in southern Arizona. We also list agencies that can provide technical assistance and even funding for eligible restoration projects.
