Where Cows Don’t Graze Training – Kanab, UT

Join the Grand Canyon Trust and the Great Old Broads for Wilderness as we learn to observe and report on the differences between public lands that have been grazed and those that have been ungrazed!

 

Southern Utah is a mecca of public lands: red rock buttes, sagebrush mesas, soaring mountains, lush meadows, and deep canyons. It’s also one of the most heavily grazed areas in the West. For instance, 97 percent of the three southern Utah national forests is open to grazing by cattle and/or domestic sheep, and 96 percent of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument is open to cattle grazing. The impacts of grazing can be seen on nearly every habitat, plant community, food web, soil type, and species in southern Utah. Current grazing practices threaten to upset the delicate balance of key Colorado Plateau natural areas — this is why we need your help.

You’ll learn from the best! Trip leader is Broads’ Board of Directors member Mary O’Brien, and you’ll also be joined by our Grassroots Leadership Coordinator Mike Kruse.

Register by April 22!
